Poetry in 1960 Live from the Future!

By Harriet Staff

Kelly Writers House at University of Pennsylvania will be streaming their symposium “Poetry in 1960” live at 6pm EST tonight, Monday, December 6th. Hosted by Writers House faculty director Al Filreis, the symposium invites eleven poets to each contribute a critical essay on a poem or collection to mark its 50th anniversary. This will most likely turn up on the amazing resource PennSound eventually, but why not catch it live while you can? The match ups:

  • Bob Perelman on The New American Poetry edited by Donald Allen
  • Ron Silliman on The Opening of the Field by Robert Duncan
  • Rachel Blau DuPlessis on Second Avenue by Frank O’Hara
  • Chris Funkhouser on Stanzas for Iris Leza by Jackson Mac Low
  • Erica Kaufman on The Location of Things by Barbara Guest
  • Judith Goldman on The Bean Eaters by Gwendolyn Brooks
  • Kristen Gallagher on Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note by LeRoi Jones
  • Danny Snelson on Cartridge Music by John Cage
  • Michael S. Hennessey on A New Folder edited by Daisy Aldan
  • Charles Bernstein on On My Eyes by Larry Eigner
  • Mel Nichols on Hymns of St. Bridget by Bill Berkson & Frank O’Hara
