Stony Brook Southampton Writers Speak: Richard Howard
Start Date: 11/13/2013Start Time: 7:00 PM

Event Description:
Known for his erudition, Richard Howard writes poems in which figures from history and literature—Oscar Wilde, Walt Whitman, Henry James—speak directly to the reader in darkly comic dramatic monologues. His many volumes of verse have also received widespread acclaim; he won the 1970 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for his collection Untitled Subjects. Other honors include the Levinson Prize, the Harriet Monroe Memorial Prize, the National Institute of Arts and Letters Literary Award, the Ordre National du Mérite from the French government, and the PEN Translation Medal, as well as fellowships from the Academy of American Poets, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the MacArthur Foundation. His translation of Charles Baudelaire's Les Fleurs du Mal (1984) won a National Book Award in 1984.
