STEPHANIE BURT IN CONVERSATION

In this Ideas event—also part of the NEA Big Read—poet Stephanie Burt discusses her book Advice From The Lights (Graywolf Press, 2017), an essential work that asks who we are, how we become ourselves, and why we make art. Burt is a poet, literary critic, and professor hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most influential poetry critics of [her] generation.” Her other collections of poems include Belmont, Parallel Play, and Popular Music.
