Signe Gjessing

Reading

Signe Gjessing (Denmark) 
In Denmark, she is frequently compared to Inger Christensen. In her work, Gjessing makes a marriage between philosophy and poetry. Big concepts like The Universe, Reality, Possibility and Being follow one another in rapid succession in poems that do not seem to take place in time or space. She writes clearly about what she thinks, sometimes seriously, sometimes playfully, in search of the limits of reality.

This is a program with Ruth Lasters. In this program, both poets read their entire festival selection with recent work.
