The Texture of Truth: Louise Crisp, Jessica Wilkinson, Alyson Miller, Ali Cobby Eckerman

In this episode the panel ‘The Texture of Truth’ recorded at the Poetry on the Move festival held in Canberra in 2019.

‘A poet’s job’ writes John Berryman, ‘ is not to play fast and loose with the facts of this world’

What kind of truth, if any, does it reveal? Does poetry merely re-present the world, or is it a way of knowing the world, a form of knowledge in itself?
