Ishion Hutchinson and Vladimir Lucien in conversation with Tishani Doshi

 

Ishion Hutchinson and Vladimir Lucien are two of the most acclaimed poets in the Caribbean. Hutchinson’s narrative poems interrogate landscape, measuring the elusive weight of colonial history. Lucien meanwhile understands the truth of which the late American artist Robert Henri spoke of: learning to look for the spirit line that runs through everything, maintaining at least one ghostly foot in realms that are decidedly non-concrete and mining this elusive, ethereal terrain. Here Hutchinson and Lucien read from and discuss their work with the poet Tishani Doshi.
