A poetry reading at the University of New Haven

Pierre Joris

The event is part of UNH’s Arts@Night series

at the UNH Bookstore on the West Haven campus.

Randall Horton, UNH assistant professor of English, said the evening promises to be an engaging one. “Pierre Joris is one of the most important poets of my generation and beyond,” Horton said. “He is a poet of the world and one sees a ‘world view’ in the body of his work. People who come out will be thoroughly mesmerized at not only Joris’ reading but his life experiences within the literary community. This will be a total experience.” Joris has translated works by Pablo PicassoMaurice BlanchotEdmond Jabès and Habib Tengour into English and books by Jack KerouacGregory Corso, Pete Townsend and Sam Shepard into French.
