Two Poets Laureate: A Reading and Conversation
Sunday, November 19, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
Former U.S. Poets Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winners Robert Hass and Charles Simic read from their latest books and discuss the necessity of poetry. In A Little Book on Form, Hass examines what makes a poem tick, and how the formal imagination actually operates in poetry. Scribbled in the Dark, Simic’s latest volume, is rich with his signature sardonic sense of humor and piercing social insight in chronicling the human condition from presidents to park benches. In conversation with Guggenheim and MacArthur Foundation fellow, and Pulitzer Prize-finalist (for XX: Poems for the Twentieth Century), Campbell McGrath.
