Poetry Discussion with Janet Krauss: The Poetry of Elizabeth Bishop (Zoom)
August 2, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Please join Wilton Library online as Janet Krauss leads a discussion of a selection of poems by Elizabeth Bishop. A readings packet will be emailed in advance of the program.
Bishop remains unique as a poet who both painted village scenes and then probed them as a poet with the precision of her words as she connected with seen and unseen people she imagined or actually knew. Bishop gained well-deserved respect and appreciation as one of our important American poets after her books were published and after her death in 1979. She received the Pulitzer Prize in 1955.
Janet Krauss, who has two books of poetry published, “Borrowed Scenery,” Yuganta Press, and “Through the Trees of Autumn,” Spartina Press, has recently retired from teaching English at Fairfield University.
