Rae Armantrout to Read on Wednesday, March 23, 4:30 PM
Rae Armantrout, Professor of Writing at the University of California San Diego, will give a reading, Wednesday, March 23, 4:30 p.m. in Room 261 Park Hall. Armantrout, the director of the New Writing Series at UCSD since 1989, is a founding member of the " Language Poetry" movement. She has authored eight volumes of poetry, most recently: UP TO SPEED (Wesleyan, 2004) and VEIL: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS (2001). Of the latter, Lyn Hejinian, says "Addressing domesticity, pedagogy, history, love, and nature, [Armantrout] discovers not epiphanies but dilemmas." According to Robert Creeley, Armantrout's poems have "a quiet and enabling signature." A WILD SALIENCE (Burning Deck) is a collection of critical writings on the work of Rae Armantrout. A Q/A and book signing follow the poetry reading.
