Poetry Lab

In April 2009, Cabinet inaugurated Poetry Lab, a series dedicated to reviving dead poets by unorthodox means, organized by D. Graham Burnett and Jeff Dolven. Poetry Lab is dedicated to discovering what more and what else can be done with a poem. Come help us find out. See each lab’s page for images and audio.
