Tractatus Philosophico-Poeticus with Signe Gjessing, Denise Newman & Rosie Ellison-Balaam
On May 17, attend a virtual book talk with Danish author Signe Gjessing and translator Denise Newman on "Tractatus Philosophico-Poeticus," an exquisite, lyrical reimagining of Wittgenstein’s philosophical work of 1922. With moderator Rosie Ellison-Balaam, they'll discuss the book and its translation, out now from Lolli Editions.

Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, often noted as the most important philosophical work of the 20th century, had a broad goal: to identify the relationship between language and reality, and to define the limits of science. Following on from Wittgenstein 100 years later, Signe Gjessing updates and reimagines the Tractatus, marrying poetry with philosophy to test the boundaries of reality. Stunning, knowing, and revitalising, and glinting with stars, silk, and ecstasy, this is poetry which exacts the logical consequence of philosophy, while locating beauty and significance in the nonsense of the world.

Please share audience questions in the Q&A or send them in advance to info@amscan.org. Select questions will be chosen for a Q&A following the conversation.​
