Maggie Evans is a graduate student in the UO Department of English.
This presentation will focus on gendered ideas about speech and silence in the compressed, evasive poetry of Lorine Niedecker, a twentieth-century American poet. It will analyze Niedecker’s correspondence and poetry to explore the productive tension in modern and postmodern women’s writing between feminized expansiveness and masculinized objectivity and condensation.
