Maureen McLane poetry reading

Thursday 6 March 2014, 7.00PM

Maureen McLane is the author of three volumes of poetry, published by Farrar Strauss Giroux in the US.  A new collection, This Blue is forthcoming in April 2014.  Maureen has also written My Poets - an experimental hybrid of memoir and criticism.  Her poetry features regularly in The New Yorker and she is a contributing editor at Boston Review.  Articles on poetry, fiction, teaching, and sexuality have appeared widely, in The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune, Boston Review, The Washington Post, American Poet, and on the Poetry Foundation website.

Maureen will also give the annual Stephen Copley lecture in the King’s Manor, York on 5 March.  She teaches Romanticism at New York University where she is Professor of English.  Before NYU, Maureen taught at Harvard, the University of Chicago, MIT, and the East Harlem Poetry Project.  She thinks print is not dead, nor poetry, nor the human - though regarding what the latter two might be, she remains agnostic.
