SFCP proudly presents:
TRAUMA, POESTRY, AND THE EMERGING WORD:
A Day with Gregory Orr
Gregory Orr is a celebrated poet and author of 11 collections of poetry and two memoirs on poetry and trauma. Much of his early work is concerned with seminal traumatic experiences from his childhood. Orr has said, "I believe in poetry as a way of surviving the emotional chaos, spiritual confusion, and traumatic events that come with being alive." In conversation with Susan Kolodny, poet and chair of the SFCP Poetry and Psychoanalysis program, Orr will discuss his poetry, trauma, and the role of the unconscious in his imagery and language. Alice Jones, poet and member of the SFCP Poetry and Psychoanalysis program, will discuss his work from a psychoanalytic perspective.
