Check This Out: Charles Wright


pg2_CTO-Charles-WrightAmong the best poets of his generation, Poet Laureate of the United States Charles Wright ’57 is the author of more than 20 books of verse.

He’s also the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award, to name just a few of his many accolades. “Wright’s work stands out among his generation of poets for the austere luxuriance of its textures, its mingling of domestic subjects and foreign methods, and its bold and unpretentious ambition.”

— J.D. McClatchy, The Paris Review, Winter II 1989, No. 113

Conarroe Lecture, Thursday, Feb. 26 in the Duke Family Performance Hall
