Robert Pinsky in Bath

Wednesday 10th March 2010

  • Venue The Bookshop, The Paragon, Bath, BA1 5LS
  • Doors open 12 noon
  • Start time 8pm

To celebrate the publication of a major new anthology, the distinguished poet,critic, translator, and former Poet Laureate of the United States, Robert Pinsky, joins us to read a selection of his ground-breaking verse.

The recipient of numerous accolades and honours, including the American Academy of Arts and Letters award and a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship, Pinsky has been a prominent voice in American letters for over three decades. Though Pinsky has been a vocal advocate of poetry’s civic importance, his verse is nevertheless notable for its relaxed conversational rhythms and searching examination of private as well as public histories.

This is a wonderful opportunity to hear one of America’s leading poet-critics and promises to be a very memorable evening.
