Wide Rime: A Troubadour Workshop with Lisa Robertson

Where: CSI, 215 Spadina Avenue, Altera Room, Toronto, ON

When: 1-5pm

More information: This workshop will be led by poet and writer Lisa Robertson, and will be held the Sunday afternoon before her reading at Knife Fork Book in Kensington on Monday evening.
A brief description:
"Taking as our guides the avant-garde of the 12th Century— the troubadour poets —(as well as a few of their more recent interpreters, translators and critics) we’ll read, discuss and think together, considering the relevance of the beginning of European lyric poetry to the practice at present. I remain unconvinced by the overly-hasty and overtly ideological declarations of lyric’s end-times, and I’m seeking an historical energy and precedent that keeps the lyric open to new thinking."
This workshop is limited to 18 students. A reading package will be supplied. Fee: $125.00
