The Vertical Elizabeth Bishop
Event Location: 
Concert Hall, Music Building California State University, Fresno 5241 North Maple Fresno, CA

In this talk, Vijay Seshadri will examine the origins and the scope of Bishop's visionary ambitions, her complicated, paradoxical relationship to the religious traditions that shaped her thought, and, finally, her ability to expose, in small poems and large, the fundamental questions underlying our experience.

A joint initiative with the Poetry Society of America, Branching Out: Poetry for the 21st Century is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
