Eileen Myles and Maggie Nelson: Poets on Painters

Recommended

Benaroya Hall (map) Downtown
Thu., Nov. 15 2012

$5-$50

Recommended by Paul Constant

Look, this is just simple math. I’ve described Maggie Nelson’s Bluets on many occasions as the rare poetry book I’d recommend to anyone and everyone, regardless of how they feel about poetry. And I’ve long called Eileen Myles one of the most original thinkers in literature today. Putting these two together on one stage to discuss the Seattle Art Museum’s new exhibit will be nothing less than spectacular. When Nelson’s delicate precision butts together with Myles’s jaw-dropping metaphors, we’ll witness a bubbling, frothing plume of intellect, wit, and surprises. (Benaroya Hall, 200 University St, www.lectures.org, 7:30 pm, $15–$50)
