â€œAnything That Burns You: Radical Poet Lola Ridge in 1908 Honoluluâ€May 8, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall 409A
Irish-born Lola Ridge (1874â€“1941) emigrated from New Zealand to New York, so determined to be free to pursue writing that she changed her name, nationality, and age, went to work for Emma Goldman and Margaret Sanger, wrote groundbreaking poetry about executions, labor, lynchings, and imprisonment that led the New York Times to describe her as â€œone of the most important poets in Americaâ€ when she died in 1941. She was forgotten due to the anti-feminist, anti-experiment, and anti-radical ethos of pre-WWII and the McCarthy era.
A Guggenheim recipient and two-time Distinguished Visiting Professor at UH, Terese Svoboda has published eighteen books of fiction, poetry, memoir, biography, and a book of translation from the Nuer. Great American Desert, a book of stories, is forthcoming in 2019.
â€œTerese Svoboda is one of those writers you would be tempted to read regardless of the setting or the period or the plot or even the genre.â€ â€” Bloomsbury Review.
