Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Louise Gluck reads at UI Sept. 26
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Louis Gluck will read
from her work at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 26 in Room 101 of the Becker Communication
Studies Building on the University of Iowa campus. Sponsored by the UI
Writers' Workshop and the UI International Writing Program, the reading
is free and open to the public.
A New Yorker review said of Gluck's work, "For more than a decade,
Gluck has been writing books of poems that are meant to be encountered
like novels." And Harvard University critic Helen Vendler wrote in
the New Republic, "[Gluck] is a poet of strong and haunting presence."
Gluck teaches at Williams College. She is the author of six previous
books of poetry and a collection of essays, "Proofs and Theories,"
which won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for nonfiction.
Gluck has been the recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award
for poetry, the Boston Globe Literary Press Award for Poetry, the Poetry
Society of America's Melville Kane Award and the William Carlos Williams
Award. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and
she won the Pulitzer Prize for "The Wild Iris "in 1993.
