A Reading by Louise Glück, the Mohr Visiting Poet

Louise Glück is one of America’s finest contemporary poets. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Glück is a former Poet Laureate of the United States and the author of a dozen widely acclaimed books. Stephen Dobyns, writing in theNew York Times Book Review, said “no American poet writes better than Louise Glück, perhaps none can lead us so deeply into our own nature.” Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Hass has called her “one of the purest and most accomplished lyric poets now writing.” Evocative and lyrically graceful, Glück’s work is noted for its emotional intensity and technical precision. Her language, staunchly straightforward, is clear and refined, so-much-so one does “not see the intervening fathoms.” Glück’s considerable accomplishments as a poet are apparent in her latest volume, Poems: 1962-2012. She is working on a new collection of poems entitled Faithful and Virtuous Night.
