Wednesday, October 10 -- Marjorie Perloff, Professor Emerita at Stanford University, distinguished scholar and literary critic, will speak on ââThe Malady of the Quotidianâ: From Wallace Stevensâ The Rock to Susan Howeâs The Quarry.â
We often think of Wallace Stevensâs poetry as being abstract and difficult, but, as another great Connecticut poet teaches us in her recent prose poem, The Quarry, Stevens has an uncanny sense of the everydayâespecially the everyday of weather and seasonal changeâof the bleak light and bare boughs of winter that, in this poetâs imagination, take on a special magic and unique perspective. Howeâs own poem builds on citations and images from the late Stevens to create an equally imaginativeâbut also very differentâpersonal landscape of memory and desire. His âVacancy in the Parkâ becomes her âVagrancy in the Parkââa delicate and compelling transformation that makes us see Hartfordâs Elizabeth Park and related sites anew.
3:00 p.m. at the Hartford Public Library.
