Jerome Rothenberg’s “Outside-in / Inside-out” Poetry Reading


Jerome Rothenberg’s closing poetry reading at the Outside-in / Inside-out conference in Glasgow this past October. Inspired by the recently published fifth volume of Poems for the Millennium, Barbaric Vast & Wild: A Gathering of Outside & Subterranean Poetry from Origins to Present, edited by Jerome Rothenberg & John Bloomberg-Rissman, this festival and symposium opened up views to poetry past, present, and potentially future with the question: Is there something in poetry ‘outside’ (economically, racially, nationally, formally, etc.) and ‘subterranean’ (suppressed by political and poetic hegemonies) that may lie at the heart of the most vital poetic practice?
