What does a person read when a whole books feels like too great a commitment? This is what poems are for (well, one thing).
In our final discussion of Dark Times Filled with Light, we look at Juan Gelman’s masterful manipulation of language and the challenges of translation.
Juan Gelman’s poems express both the power and impotence to effect change, all the while making clear poetry is not for the faint of heart.
In our first book club discussion of Juan Gelman’s Dark Times Filled with Light we consider our awakening to the world beyond our front door.
We announce our upcoming book club, reading together the poems of Juan Gelman’s Dark Times Filled With Light, taking to heart his encouragement to “find room in one another, humans.”
