Charles Bernstein: Pitch of Poetry book party
Tuesday, April 12, 2016 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Kelly Writers House, Arts Cafe

From the Kelly Writers House:

Dear friends,

Join us in celebration of CHARLES BERNSTEIN next Tuesday, April 12th, at the book party for his latest: the fascinating and refreshing PITCH OF POETRY. This critical work is an irreverent guide to modernist and contemporary poetics that makes a case for “echopoetics,” a poetry of call and response, reason and imagination, disfiguration and refiguration. Subjects include Holocaust representation, Occupy Wall Street, and the figurative nature of abstract art, with essays on poets such as Gertrude Stein, Robert Creeley, John Ashbery, Barbara Guest, Larry Eigner, and Leslie Scalapino. Hear more for yourself as we honor Charles-- next Tuesday, April 12th, at 6 o’clock. We’d love to have you here!
