Poetry, Protest, and Prayer
This lecture will offer some reflection on how and why poetry has served and can serve as a peculiarly fitting instrument of protest, and how poetry and protest at their best draw from the rich tradition of common prayer that knits us together as one Body with many voices. We will look at several protest poems and public prayers and consider how, even in solitude, we may participate in speaking out and for those entrusted to our care.
Marilyn McEntyre teaches medical humanities at UC Berkeley and writing at UC Davis, and has published four volumes of poetry. Read her full bio.
