Join Porter Square Books at Aeronaut Brewing on the Duck Village Stage for an exploration of poetry that push boundaries of poetry and poetic performance. The July 19 performance will be “Take This Cup from Me.”
“Take This Cup from Me” will present multiple translations, interpretations, and reactions to Cesar Vallejo’s poem of the Spanish Civil War, “Spain, Take This Cup from Me”. Literature can both show us how we are all connected by our fundamental humanity an the vast diversity of human expression. This performance engages with the threads that unite us all and the menageries of expression that reveal our potential to converse with art and literature’s long struggle for justice and create of an object of our own resistance.
This event will take place at Aeronaut Brewing in Somerville.
Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
