Poetics, Writing, Thought: Martin Harrison’s Final Appearance

In 2014 Martin Harrison and Jason Childs launched a series of poetics seminars Poetics, Writing, Thought. It would be here, just a few days before he died later that year in September, that Martin Harrison would deliver his final words in public. In “Fragments from the Harrisonian Institute: against ‘priority’ in Poetics, Writing, Thought“, Jason Childs meditates on Martin’s enthusiasm for pedagogy and discussion about poetic thought, poetic expression and, of course, the poetic life. His friend and colleague Deborah Bird Rose, who appeared alongside him at the event, reflects on Martin and their final moments in “Martin Harrison in Conversation”.
