Reading

Charles Bernstein

Location: Swift Hall room 106. 1025 East 58th Street (on the Main Quadrangle of the University, directly east of Cobb Hall)
Admission: free
 

Highly esteemed poet, professor, and literary scholar Charles Bernstein will do a reading dedicated to his daughter Emma. The reading coincides with the release of All the Whiskey in Heaven, a thirty-year anthology. In addition, the reading will celebrate the recent release of Radical Poetics and Secular Jewish Culture, a collection of essays in which poets and critics, Bernstein among them, address the question of what constitutes radical poetry written by Jews defined as ?secular?, and whether or not there is a Jewish component or dimension to radical and modernist poetic practice in general. The reading will be followed by a reception at the gallery.

Charles Bernstein is Donald T. Regan Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of Pennsylvania
