Helen Dimos ^^ A poetry reading/talk on the difficulty and desire of/for communication, in poetry and the political

June 14 @ 8:00 pm - 8:30 pm

A poem is not going to give precise directions’

–Anna Mendelssohn

This talk/reading will try to think about the anxiety of communication – are these poems communicating? – in the first place. In the second place, to think about some of the political meanings which accompany modes of writing and modes of political action which refuse the transactional, the recognizable, the smoothly exchangeable. I will end with a short poetry reading.


Helen Dimos lives in Athens and tries to write. Her books are No Realtor Was Compensated for This Sale, 2017, and a translation with glosses of Cesar Vallejo’s Trilce, together with William Rowe. Intermissions & Things, her second collection of poems, is forthcoming.
