David Whyte: Live in San Francisco
One of the singular experiences of human beings is the ability to imagine what is pulling us a far horizon. Speaking in San Francisco's historic Herbst Theatre, David Whyte illustrates how the close reading of good poetry engages us in conversation with this imaginative vision: a fierce attention to the poet's voice leads us, in turn, to discern our own.
David Whyte has been exploring the underlying dynamics of conversation for most of his poetic career. With an eloquent combination of poetry, humor and insight, he brings to life the beauty and consequence of engaging in the real conversations of our lives, giving us a larger, more generous vision of ourselves and the world around us.
