Monday at Tulane: Robert Hass Bakes Bread

“Poetry is a way of living….a human activity like baking bread or playing basketball.” —Robert Hass

As part of Tulane University’s Poet Laureate Series, the esteemed poet and translator Robert Hass will do his thang for the people on Mon., Jan. 24, at 7 p.m. in Dixon Hall. More info here.

The video below suggests that the event will induce in many of us a lump in the throat and warmth in the heart, along with a strong sense that our intellects and poetic sensibilities are not nearly as developed, relatively speaking, as we may have previously imagined.
