Calling Knight’s a “poetics of liquid” Hayes writes, “The poetics of liquid is the poetics of wind. The poetics of liquid is the poetics of escape, the poetics of doors and windows.

It is the poetics of feeling.” In this Master Class, Hayes will guide in participants in continuing to explore the critical insights offered and questions raised by Etheridge Knight.
