OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | In 1954 the Chilean poet Nicanor Parra published Poems and Antipoems, a polemical volume that coined and popularized the term antipoetry and ultimately revolutionized Latin American poetry.

In this talk, Dr. Marlene Gottlieb will discuss the meaning of the term antipoetry, its evolution and its legacy for Latin American and world poetry.
