“The Poetic Past” with Campbell McGrath, Bettina Judd, Linwood Rumney, and John Drury

Contemporary poetry is filled with work that explores historical material. Reflecting on the importance of this tradition, this panel offers insights into writing strategies, research practices, and professional opportunities for such work. What is the poet’s responsibility to historical accuracy and representing historical figures? What kind of research is done in crafting such poems? What strategies can poets use to write about and through historical material?
