Wilton Library: Stanley Kunitz Poetry Discussion with Janet Krauss
August 31 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Janet Krauss leads a discussion of a selection of poems by Stanley Kunitz. Kunitz was so well respected as a poet, he was twice named Poet Laureate of the United States, first in 1974 and then in 1995. Many years previously, he received the Pulitzer for Selected Poems, 1928-1958. In 1993, President Clinton honored him with the National Medal of Arts. In Passing Through, published in 1995, his poems were described by a critic as “contemplative, confiding, mythic and elegiac.” 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.
