Michael Dickman poetry reading, followed by a reading of the work of CK Williams

Michael Dickman — Green Migraine: Poems; Followed by a reading from CK Williams’ Selected Later Poems
Tuesday, December 1st, 2015 at 6PM — Labyrinth Books Princeton
“My master plan is happiness,” writes Michael Dickman in his wonderfully strange third book, Green Migraine. Here, imagination and reality swirl in the juxtaposition between beauty and violence in the natural world. Drawing inspiration from the verdant poetry of John Clare, Dickman uses hyper-real, dreamlike images to encapsulate, illustrate, and illuminate how we access internal and external landscapes. The result is nothing short of a fantastic, modern-day fairy tale.

Michael Dickman teaches poetry at Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts. He is the author of The End of the West and Flies, which won the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets.


In honor of C.K. Williams, Michael Dickman, Jeff Dolven, James Richardson, Susan Stewart, Tracy Smith, and Susan Wheeler will each read a poem from Williams’ Selected Later Poems, which appeared in September.
