We’ve all had those moments: forgetting where you put the keys, going blank on what to grab at the grocery store. We joke with our friends that it’s because “the mind is the first to go.” Scholar and author Lewis Hyde joins host Krys Boyd to talk about how forgetting can actually allow for profound change and even be a blessing. His new book is called “A Primer for Forgetting: Getting Past the Past.”
Rachel Monroe sits down with poet, essayist, translator, cultural critic and Lannan resident Lewis Hyde.
Hyde takes a specific interest in imagination, creativity, and property, art-making at odds with commerce. He has authored The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, Trickster Makes this World: Mischief, Myth and Art and Common as Air: Revolution, Art, and Ownership on these topics, and today sits down to talk about his latest work on memory. Hosted by Rachel Monroe for KRTS
