Reading and Discussion: Poetry and the Art of Resistance


How is poetry used in the service of politics? Contrarily, how does poetry as an art form allow us to challenge orthodoxies, smash patriarchies, upturn conventions of language and gender, and expose racism? Must all writing in this vein be bombastic, or can slow-burning, quiet resistance be just as effective? Three pioneering poets Marcas Mac an Tuaineir, Vahni Capildeo, and Nadine Aisha Jassat interrogate the strengths and limitations of poetry as an art of resistance.
