The Strangest of Theatres: Poets Writing Across Borders

4.43  ·  Rating details ·  7 Ratings  ·  2 Reviews
The Strangest of Theatres explores how poets who are willing to venture beyond our borders can serve as envoys to the wider world and revitalize American poetry in the process. What are they looking for when they leave? What do they find? How does their experience shape them, and what is revealed when they sit down at their desks and take up the pen?
