Poets' Memorial for Steve Lacy
Wednesday, January 19th, 8:00pm



A memorial for and tribute to the great and most literary of jazz musicians, Steve Lacy, who died of liver cancer in June of this year, age 69. Born in New York in 1934, Lacy rescued the soprano sax from almost total disuse in 1950 and, in the ensuing decades, made the instrument uniquely his own while simultaneously expanding its possibilities. Tonight’s readers and performers include Irene Aebi, Juini Booth, William Corbett, Robert Creeley, Douglas Dunn, Suzanne Frecon, John Giorno, Pierre Joris, Daniel Kelpfer, James Koller, Ruth Lepson, Nicole Peyrafitte, and Roswell Rudd, among others.

MARCH 2004:

AWP (Associated Writing Programs) conference in Chicago from 25 to 28 March.

 

Friday 26, 10:30 - 11:15 (F- 209 Parlor G 6th Floor) F209—What Does Translation Give the Poet? Khaled Mattawa, Annie Finch, Pierre Joris, Tony Barnstone. Poet-translators discuss the links between their writing and translation. Panelists will reflect on why they began translating, how their approaches to translation have changed, and if these changes influenced or were influenced by their original texts. They will also discuss the changes in their writing/translation techniques that were necessary to render foreign texts into English. Panelists using intertextual techniques will inform on writing strategies where translation is central to the creation of original text.


Friday 26, 1-2:15 pm: F104—Antonin Artaud’s “Poetics of Cruelty” for Contemporary Writers. Jamerson Maurer, Clayton Eshleman, Judith E. Johnson, Pierre Joris, Aim Ali . Antonin Artaud remains an extremely marginalized figure of Modernism. His theories on a Theater of Cruelty, his poetry, and his performance art attempted to release the “shadows” of life, and destroy the effigies causing the ills of society. The panel will discuss Artaud from many points of view—translation, performance art, poetics, modern-day influence, and the critical & theoretical discourse on his work—and propose that contemporary writers find strong transformative values in his poetics.


Friday 26, 7:30 p.m.: Poetry Reading organized by Circumference magazine to protest the fact that “the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control recently declared that American publishers cannot edit works authored in nations under trade embargoes which include Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Libya and Cuba.” Delilah’s Bar, 2771 North Lincoln Avenue.
