Tuesday, January 28, 2014

The essayist, translator, poet, and cultural critic Lewis Hyde reads excerpts from his new book, A Primer for Forgetting, which is forthcoming in 2015 from Farrar, Straus and Giroux. In this book, he explores not only the limits of memory, but also instances in which forgetfulness is more useful than memory.
