Cornelius Eady: Creativity in Isolation

May 15, 2020

By Nancy Kuhl

We asked poet and musician Cornelius Eady  what he has been thinking about in this time of isolation; in response, he talked about finding new ways to collaborate with his fellow musicians and about the importance of documenting the present moment through creative practice.

A description of the poet’s literary archive at Beinecke Library is online here: JWJ MSS 146; the papers of Cave Canem, the organiztion Eady co-founded to support African American poets and poetry, are also in our colletcion: JWJ MSS 130.
