What is the encounter between fiction and works of art? How do writers dramatize acts of looking? What are the difficulties of depicting images in prose, and what opens up in that disconnect? Join Ben Lerner and Geoff Dyer for an out(of sheer)rageous discussion of the problems and possibilities of writing about looking. Moderated by Lorin Stein, editor of The Paris Review. It's time to get excited about ekphrasis!
