Dorothea Lasky: “What Is Color in Poetry or Is It the Wild Wind in the Space of the Word?”


Dorothea Lasky, a poet known for her colloquial style and dramatic readings, explores the mystical and practical relationships between color and poetry. An assistant professor at Columbia University, Lasky is the inaugural Bagley Wright Lecturer on Poetry, the co-editor of Open the Door: How to Excite Young People About Poetry, and the author of three poetry collections, including Thunderbird (2012).
