Poets@Pace Returns

News Story

This month, celebrate the work of award-winning poet James Schuyler and join several poets, writers, and artists as they read from his body of work.

Join the Pace Community as we celebrate the work of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet James Schuyler as part of this semester’s Poets@Pace program. A central member of the so-called New York School, Schuyler 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).

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

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 to Pace each semester, is organized by Pace Poet-in-Residence Charles North and sponsored by the Office of the Provost.
