Open to the Public
Diary, daybook, to do list: these quotidian forms can be fruitful fodder for works of imaginative literature in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, spurring and dramatizing consciousness self-discovery in what feels like real time. This lecture will examine works by Hilton Als, A.R. Ammons, Sarah Manguso, Enrique Vila-Matas, and others to see what can be accomplished when these kinds of real-time check-ins are used as literary forms.
