Award-Winning Poet Anne Carson Will Read At U.Va. Bookstore Oct. 27

October 1, 2003 -- The acclaimed Canadian poet and essayist Anne Carson will read from her poetry at the University of Virginia Bookstore on Monday, Oct. 27.

Carson, professor of classics at McGill University and winner of several major literary prizes, will read at 8 p.m. as part of the U.Va. English department’s Peters Rushton lecture series.

Her poetry collections, widely praised for their originality and blend of ancient and modern themes, include “The Beauty of the Husband,” “Autobiography of Red,” “Plainwater,” and “Glass, Irony and God.” Novelist Michael Ondaatje, author of “The English Patient,” has called her “the most exciting person in writing in English today … brilliant, passionate and deeply moving.”

A noted Greek and Latin scholar as well as a poet, Carson has been honored with a MacArthur Fellowship, Britain’s T.S. Eliot Prize for best book of new poetry, a Lannan Literary Award, a Pushcart Prize and a National Book Critics Circle nomination, among other awards.
