This talk centers the uses of the lyric, of writing and reading lyrically, through an engagement with the work of Édouard Glissant. Utilizing historical definitions of the lyric alongside Glissant’s critical and literary work, the poetry collection Boises is considered especially as an instance of the lyric as a method for literary encounter and as a possible method for broader social and political encounters.
