Please join us for brief readings from Alan Shapiro, Debra Allbery, Marianne Boruch, Jennifer Grotz, James Longenbach, Maurice Manning, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Alan Williamson, Eleanor Wilner, and Karen Brennan.The venture of this collection is to look, from the many vantages that the poets in this eclectic anthology chose to look, at what it was -- knowing that a poem can’t be conceived in advance of its creation -- that helped their poems to emerge or connected them over time; to see how the meticulous and the spontaneous come together in this process. If preexisting "subjects" or preordained endings are deadly, what kinds of materials, decisions, or intentions invite the imagination? What triggers what Linda Gregerson calls "that blessed ambush they used to call the Muse," that self-renewing source that refreshes and enlarges vision?
