Reading

In Alan Dugan's last performance at the Poetry Center, he reads widely from work published during the 26 years between 1963 and 1989. He reads poems about art and artists, Greek and Roman antiquity, contemporary life in Provincetown, World War II, work, and cats.

Reading
In this lecture on Homer titled "We Should Shudder," Michael Schmidt discusses the distance of early Greek sensibility from our own and the power of impersonal writing in Homer's poems, reflecting upon what modern poets can learn from this approach. He also incorporates readings of poems by W.H. Auden and Edwin Muir.
