Poetry — from the Greek epic to the ‘confessional’ mode of the late-twentieth century — has always been a kind of memory-making, a mnemonic tool, a means of eking out narratives from the raw material of lived experience.
Jollin Tan and Samuel Lee will discuss the ways in which memory functions as aid and obstacle in older work as well as current manuscripts-in-progress, and share new poems that attempt to map the terrain of personal memory.
They will also be reading from their previous poetry collections, Bursting Seams (2013) and Derivative Faith (2013) by Jollin Tan and A Field Guide to Supermarkets in Singapore (2016) by Samuel Lee.
