"Poet, That’s Just Like You!": Language and the Figure of Echo (Steiner Lecture)

Title

"Poet, That’s Just Like You!": Language and the Figure of Echo (Steiner Lecture)

Description

Video recording of a lecture delivered on February 11, 2022, by Ange Mlinko as part of the Formal Lecture Series.

Mlinko is the poetry editor of the Nation, an associate professor at the University of Florida, and a Guggenheim fellow.

Mlinko describes her lecture: "Poetry is an enormous subject, but it can be distilled into a single figure. This figure is Echo, who manifests in three ways: as a prosodic device at the level of the line and stanza; as a poetic form; and as a nymph from Greek mythology, who may stand in for literature itself. We will look at the many ways in which Echo informs poetry and teaches us to read it.”
