Follow that Fragrance! Chasing Lilac History
White lilacs and Rachmaninov are connected how? Can you name the Walt Whitman lilac poem not addressing President Lincoln’s assassination? Ben Miller and four Harvard College research partners have been harvesting material for a book-length lyric essay about the lilac aura, and ways it has filtered through their own lives and cultures around the globe. The presentation features poems, songs, monologues, and visual art celebrating Syringa vulgaris.
