YES, YOUR GRANDMOTHER’S WILD, AND OTHER EVIDENCE OF WILD ANCESTRY; SIGHTINGS AND SIGHINGS OF LIONS AND OTHER EVIDENCE OF WILD TERRAIN CLOSE TO HOME; AND SPEAKING OF BEASTS (WHICH WE ARE), WILD THEORY—THE CASE FOR HOMER AS A WOMAN

Poems and news of one’s inner wild, from your host’s experience of being delicious to a bear (“Night Hunger, Wild Hunger”) and inner lion DNA, to Galway Kinnel’s “The Bear,” and more, Carl Sandburg’s “Wilderness,” and Gary Snyder, “How Poetry Comes to Me” and “For All,” Lisa Jarnot, “Brooklyn Anchorage” Sandra McPherson’s “Lion,” Hayden Carruth (“wouldn’t it be great to write nothing at all but poetry of bears”) and James Joyce, Portrait of the Artist As A Young Man, to wild reading of domestic Odyssey—as wild life is in our headline news, backyards, urban streets, and in our creative hungers.
