Internationally-renowned poet Louise Glück will give a poetry reading as part of the Department of English’s Plutzik Memorial Reading Series.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, a former Poet Laureate of the United States, Glück is the author a dozen widely acclaimed books, most recently Poems: 1962-2012. Stephen Dobyns, writing in the New York Times Book Review, said “no American poet writes better than Louise Glück, perhaps none can leads us so deeply into our own nature.” Pulitzer Prize-winner Robert Hass has called her “one of the purest and most accomplished lyric poets now writing.”
Glück is currently the Rosenkranz Writer-in-Residence at Yale University, having taught previously at Williams College for over twenty years. She is a member of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and was in 1999 elected a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets.
At the reading, Glück will be introduced by James Longenbach, the Joseph H. Gilmore Professor of English at the University.
