Edward Hirsch: U-M English Department Zell Visiting Writers Series.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Poetry reading by this MacArthur "genius" Award-winning poet and critic-currently president of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation-whose work is known for its formal clarity and sensuous intensity. His early work contains vignettes of urban life, as well as persona poems voiced from historical perspectives ranging from D.H. Lawrence and Charles Baudelaire to Jimi Hendrix. Hirsch's popular "Poet's Choice" column appeared in the Washington Post for years, and was notable for deftly illuminating the inner workings and feelings of others' poetry. "Hirsch situates himself between the ordinary and the ecstatic. The everyday and the otherworldly temper each other in [his] excellent poems, and American poetry gains new strength as a result," writes a New York Times critic in a review of Hirsch's latest collection, The Living Fire: New and Selected Poems 1972-2010. Also, at 5:10 p.m. on Nov. 7, a conversation between Hirsch and U-M poetry professor Linda Gregerson in the UMMA auditorium.
