Tuesday, March 23: Discover Louise Gluck, America's Nobel Laureate, with Dr. James Allen Hall

Louise Glück: America's Nobel Laureate: 

In 2020, the Nobel Prize in Literature was awarded to Louise Glück, a poet who published her first collection in 1968 when she was in her mid-twenties. In its citation, the Nobel Committee marked Glück's accessible language, her urgent voice, and her use of biting wit and humor. We'll talk about these characteristics--and perhaps more!--in looking at three poems by America's most recent Nobel Laureate.
