Eileen Myles: To Dig a Hole in Eternity

New York poet, novelist and performer discusses their fascinating career

The electrifying work of poet, novelist and performer Eileen Myles has long subverted the literary and cultural status quo.

With beginnings in the downtown New York poetry scene of the 1970s, their canon spans 20 books of poetry, prose and fiction, including the 1994 queer novel Chelsea Girls and, most recently, the wrenching Afterglow (a dog memoir).

Annamarie Jagose meets the revered writer who described their work as an attempt “to dig a hole in eternity” through language.

Supported by the University of Sydney.



Friday 4 May 2018 from 6pm to 7pm
