Is there such a thing as a 'poet's novel, ' a text which uniquely traverses boundaries between genres? Why do poets turn to prose? If such a form does exist, how is it characterized? The Poet's Novel, a talk by Laynie Browne, presented with drawings by Noah Saterstrom, examines this erratic, hybrid and often elusive form. Writers discussed include Virginia Woolf, Marcel Proust, and Lydia Davis, among others. Poet and novelist Laynie Browne is the editor of a forthcoming collection of essays, A Forest on Many Stems: Essays on the Poet's Novel.
