Poetry, as a form, can exploit and explode literary boundaries; and these poets explore borders of all kinds in their work: the political boundaries between countries, the space between the world we know and the unknown, the edges of language—and what we leave behind when we cross these borders. Featuring poets John Freeman (Maps), Erika L. Sánchez (Lessons on Expulsion), Javier Zamora (Unaccompanied), and Matthew Zapruder (Why Poetry) with moderator Sarah Bowlin. Presented in partnership with the Poetry Foundation.
