One of the most awe-inspiring aspects of poetic language is its ability to transport the human spirit to multiple levels of time, space and meaning, often enveloping old worlds as well as new ones, yet all within a single poetic moment. Join Dr. Richard Sacks, who spent four decades at Columbia University teaching its core great books course, for a close reading of one such expansive poetic moment, the 12-line opening poem from “Map of the New World” by the Nobel Prize-winning Afro-Caribbean/American poet Derek Walcott.
