Special Feature: Alice Notley on video, 1976–2016

The Poetry Center compiled its recordings of Alice Notley reading her work across the span of four decades, in conjunction with “Alette in Oakland,” a three-day symposium celebrating the life and poetry of Alice Notley, October 24–26, 2014, that took place at the Omni in Oakland. Those videos are supplemented here by Notley’s November 2016 two-evening reading of her complete book-length feminist epic, The Descent of Alette, at The Lab in San Francisco.
