Poets@Pace: Spring 2018
On Monday, April 2, join the Pace Community for another edition of Poets @ Pace, featuring celebrated poet Ron Padgett.
Each semester, the Poets @ Pace series brings important poets to the NYC Campus. It's organized by Pace Poet-in-Residence Charles North, and sponsored by the Office of the Provost.
The incomparable poet and translator Ron Padgett will be reading his translations of Guillaume Apollinaire, one of the great, influential poets of the 20th century. Stop by for what is sure to be an evening of literary delight! (Not to mention plenty of snacks.)
Ron Padgett: Ron Padgett came to New York City from Tulsa in 1960 to attend Columbia University, and is one of the most visible poets on the scene. The author of more than twenty books, he has received numerous honors for both his poetry and his translations, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and a Pulitzer Prize nomination. His poems were used in Jim Jarmusch's 2016 film Paterson.
Guillaume Apollinaire: (1880–1918) was a central figure in the literary and artistic life in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century, and remains one of the century's most important and influential poets. While fighting in the French infantry during the First World War, he suffered a serious head wound, and eventually succumbed to influenza two days before the Armistice.
