Words From The World

  • Sunday, 13th Nov
  • 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm IST
  • St Pauls Institute, Title Waves

Poetry offers us a way to perceive the world and language anew. One poet in this session has said: “I don’t really care for the rules of English.” Another has said: “the pen gives us the opportunity to cross out words as much as it gives us the power to write them.”A third poet has said: “the secret self is invariably unmasked in the process of writing every poem.” A critic has said that the fourth poet “hotwires space and time…something flashes into being: a new sense, a beauty…”. Come to the session and try to match the quote to the poet!
