DescriptionWhat happens when an American poet at the start of the 20th century begins his work with the effort to empty the mind? Professor Amy Hungerford tells the story of how one of American Modernism's greatest and most philosophical poets sought to strip old beliefs away from the perceiving mind to create a new way of seeing the world.
The result is a singularly ambitious form of poetry that claims—with a mixture of hubris and humility—to embrace all forms of human thought and making.CreatorYale-NUS CollegeDate13-MAR-2014FormatVideoContributorAmy HungerfordLanguageEnglishLength00:45:09EventPresident's Speaker SeriesPublisherYale-NUS CollegeLocationSingapore
