Poetry reading by Geoffrey Brock

April 8, 7:00 pm-8:30 pm


The TU community is invited to join the Department of English for a reading by Geoffrey Brock, celebrating the launch of his third poetry book. This event showcases Brock’s decades-long journey as a poet and translator, offering an elegy for his father, who was also a poet. The collection delves into after poems, a form of translation engaging not only with Italian poets but also with English-language poets like Keats and Seamus Heaney. According to Presidential Professor Boris Dralyuk, attendees can expect an inventive use of meter and rhyme that makes the contemporary speech of our era feel mystical. As the Distinguished Professor of English at the University of Arkansas, Brock’s translations have garnered prestigious awards, including ALTA’s National Translation Award for Poetry and the PEN Center USA Translation Prize. Don’t miss the chance to witness this literary event with one of today’s most innovative poets.
