The Evening of the Poem (NYC)

News Story

On April 13, join some of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Schuyler’s editors and fellow poets in celebrating his work with readings as part of Poets@Pace.

Poetry returns to Pace on Monday, April 13, from 6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m., as Poets@Pace presents The Poetry of James Schuyler in the Bianco Room on the NYC Campus.

Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Schuyler, a central member of the so-called New York School, was one of the most important poets in America in the second half of the 20th century. His poetry is often quiet rather than flashy, celebrated for its precise rendering of how things look and feel and sound, its supreme craft, and its abiding humanity. Schuyler’s major poetry collections include The Crystal Lithium (1972), Hymn to Life (1974), The Morning of the Poem (1980), and A Few Days (1985).

Schuyler is also a novelist, whose works include Alfred and Guinevere (1958), A Nest of Ninnies with John Ashbery (1969), and What’s for Dinner (1978).

The readings of Schuyler’s work will be done by those who’ve had close connections
 with the poet:

>>Bill Corbett, poet, memoirist, and publisher
>>Nathan Kernan, writer and editor
>>Eileen Myles, poet and writer

>>Trevor Winkfield, painter and editor

Following the reading, join us for light refreshments and a Q&A with the readers. This event is free and open to the public.

Poets@Pace, which brings important writers and poets to Pace each semester, is organized by Pace Poet-in-Residence Charles North and sponsored by the Office of the Provost. For more information about Poets@Pace, please contact Charles North at
