A Reading and Conversation with Carl Phillips

February 16, Thursday, 5:30 pm
Rapaporte Treasure Hall, Goldfarb Library

"Greek tragedy in particular concerns the conflict between private behavior and societal expectation, and that’s at the heart of what I write about. But I would say I’m just as influenced – moreso – by being gay and black, two things that meant growing up in conflict with societal ‘norms.’."
-- Carl Phillips in an interview in Smartish Pace

A finalist for both the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award, Phillips's honors include the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Poetry, two Lambda Literary Awards, and the Thom Gunn Award for Gay Poetry as well as fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Library of Congress, and the Academy of American Poets, for which he served as a Chancellor (2006-2012).

Currently the judge for the Yale Younger Poets Series, Phillips is a Professor of English at Washington University in St. Louis where he teaches creative writing, Twentieth-century poetry, and African-American Literature.

RSVP (optional) on Facebook. Questions? Contact ebrad@brandeis.edu.

Cosponsored by Creative Writing, Women's and Gender Studies, African and African-American Studies, and the Ethics Center.
