The Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry: Sarah Jackson
with introduction by Nick Laird

Thursday, November 21st, 7pm
at Glucksman Ireland House NYU, 1 Washington Mews at 5th Ave.

Sarah Jackson is the 2013 winner of the Seamus Heaney Prize for Poetry.  She won the Prize for Pelt, a remarkable collection of lyric poems that meditate on unseen influences, fleeting insights, patterns of meaning, and shapes of time.

The Tom Quinlan Lecture in Poetry at Glucksman Ireland House honors Tom, public school teacher in Philadelphia, lover of poetry, and Glucksman Ireland House member since 1997; the lecture is endowed by his family.  We are especially pleased that the Quinlan Lecture is offered in partnership with the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queens University, Belfast.  The Seamus Heaney Prize for poetry is awarded annually by the Heaney Centre to the author of the best first book of poems published in Ireland or Britain.

Nick Laird, award-winning Northern Irish poet and novelist, will introduce Jackson.  Laird has won the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, the Ireland Chair of Poetry Award, the Betty Trask Prize, a Somerset Maugham award, and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.  Laird’s remarks will include a tribute to Seamus Heaney.

Comp Lit Undergraduate Major’s Choice Lecture with Ariana Reines

About Ariana Reines: (from poetryfoundation.org)

Born in Salem, Massachusetts, poet, playwright, and translator Ariana Reines earned a BA from Barnard College, and completed graduate work at both Columbia University and the European Graduate School, where she studied literature, performance, and philosophy. Her books of poetry include The Cow (2006), which won the Alberta Prize from Fence Books; Coeur de Lion (2007); and Mercury (2011). Her poems have been anthologized in Against Expression (2011) and Gurlesque (2010). Known for her interest in bodily experience, the occult, new media, and the possibilities of the long or book-length form, Reines has been described as “one of the crucial voices of her generation” by Michael Silverblatt on NPR’s Bookworm. At once personal, Romantic, slippery, and extreme, Reines’s poetry investigates and overturns lyric conventions. Of her own work, she admitted in an interview with HTML Giant: “My best writing seems to have to be forced from me by some other force but that force has to be one whose power I agree to serve.”

Reines’s first play Telephone (2009) was performed at the Cherry Lane Theater and received two Obie Awards. A re-imagining of its second act was featured as part of the Guggenheim’s Works+Process series in 2009, and the script was published in Play: A Journal of Plays in 2010. Reines’s translations include a version of Baudelaire’s My Heart Laid Bare (2009); Jean-Luc Hennig’s The Little Black Book of Griselidis Real: Days and Nights of an Anarchist Whore(2009); and Tiqqun’s Preliminary Materials Toward a Theory of the Young-Girl (2012). 

Reines has taught at Columbia University and the European Graduate School, and was the Roberta C. Holloway Lecturer in Poetry at the University of California-Berkeley in 2009, the youngest poet to ever hold that position. She has traveled to Haiti multiple times as part of the on-going relief efforts there. 

Best Regards,

Tycho Horan, Willis Plummer, and Lindsay Zackeroff
