Join us for an evening of poetry, on the back deck at Castle Hill, with renowned poet-laureate Robert Pinsky reading from his latest work and his published poems.
Robert Pinskey's new book of poems, At the Foundling Hospital, was published in December, 2016. The book mediates the "foundling" to exemplify the ways cultural identity and personal identity, both are improvised, imposed, hybrid, multiple and combustible. Robert's Selected Poems appeared in 2011. He has described his 2013 book Singing School as a combined anthology and manifesto. His best-selling translation The Inferno of Dante was awarded the Los Angeles Times Book Award in Poetry and the Harold Morton Landon translation prize. As Poet Laureate of the United States, he founded the "Favorite Poem Project", featuring the videos at www.favoritepoem.org. He performs with pianist Laurence Hobgood on the spoken word CDs PoemJazz and House Hour, from Circumstantial Productions. Robert Pinsky is the only member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters to have appeared on both 'The Colbert Report' and 'The Simpsons'.
