In Poetic Times

perhaps these are not poetic / times / at all – ‘For Saundra’, Nikki Giovanni

What is the worth of poetic practice in times like these? Poets have often been thought of as visionaries – but what role do their visions play in today’s complex and confounding world? In Omar Sakr’s keynote speech, he explores the meaning of poetry in a world where mundanity, catastrophe and absurdity can sometimes make poetry feel all too meaningless.
