Seattle Arts & Lectures: Maggie Nelson

Maggie Nelson - On Freedom: Four Songs of Care and Restraint

Poet, scholar, and nonfiction writer Maggie Nelson’s body of work is often described as hybrid and genre-bending; some say it defies classification. The Paris Review pinpoints the nexus of her writing as, “fluidity: gender, pleasure, desire, and the body are questioned with equal rigor as modality, criticality, and theory.”
The author of the cult-classic Bluets and, more recently, The Argonauts, a finalist for the National Books Critics Circle Award, Nelson is back with a new volume that interweaves critical theory, pop culture, and the intimate exchanges of daily living. Her new book, On Freedom: Four Songs of Care and Restraint, explores how we think, experience, and talk about freedom in ways responsive to the conditions of our experience.
