Poetics of Home Festival


Poetry and Society

Season 1, Ep. 5

Can one write poetry without thinking or caring about society? How does reality find its way to the poet’s page? What is a poet’s responsibility- to whom or what do they pledge their allegiances, as they experience and reflect the world? Laura Jane Lee, Natalie Linh Bolderston and Cheng Tim Tim join Sarah Howe for a poetry reading and conversation.

Recorded on the 28th of September, 2021

Cheng Tim Tim’s selected poems: Cicada & Diode

Laura Jane Lee’s - Flinch and Air
