Upcoming Event
Friday, May 31, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Called "one of the most influential poetry critics of [her] generation," by The New York Times, Burt is also one of the most accessible and genuinely enthusiastic. An acclaimed poet in addition to being a Harvard Professor and co-editor of poetry for the Nation, Burt addresses her new book to a diverse general readership, dispelling the intimidating myths of poetry and emphasizing the joy to be found in it. Presenting a wide-ranging selection of poems from the classics to contemporary work, she shows how past poets speak to current poets, how their pieces speak to each other, and, most importantly, how poetry from any period can speak to, and enrich, the lives of today’s readers.
