GILBERT AND LYMAN TEAM UP FOR FREE POETRY READING AT MARLBORO COLLEGE
MARLBORO, VERMONT – Marlboro College is pleased to announce a free poetry reading set for Thursday, April 10, at 7 p.m. in the Drury Gallery.
This reading will be by poets Jack Gilbert and Henry Lyman.
Gilbert's first volume of poems, Views Of Jeopardy, received the Yale Younger Poet's Prize in 1962, and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, alongside collections by Robert Frost and William Carlos Williams. Monolithos: Poems, 1962 and 1982, also nominated for the Pulitzer, was awarded the Stanley Kunitz Prize and the American Poetry Review Prize. Gilbert's most recent collection, Great Fires: Poems, 1982-1992, remains true to the sparse, concrete, yet powerfully affecting style that has always characterized his work.
Lyman edited "After Frost, an Anthology of Poetry from New England" and is a respected poet in his own right.
