Language as a reason for war

Contemporary poets in Ukraine are faced with difficult questions: how does a lyric poet continue to find music in a time of crisis? What is language in a country where two different languages have been pointed out as reasons for conflict in a war-zone?

Ilya Kaminsky (UKR/USA) will look at poetry from Ukraine to find answers to these, and other questions.
