Niedecker’s Binoculars: A virtual talk by Patrick Morrissey

November 10 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm CST

Friends of Lorine Niedecker (FoLN) are delighted to host poet and essayist Patrick Morrissey for a virtual talk delivered via Zoom on Sunday, November 10, 2024 at 5pm CST. This event will be recorded.

This talk will consider the significance of double vision, shifting scales, and embarrassment in the poetry of Lorine Niedecker. Through close consideration of a few favorite poems and some speculation about the value of poetry, Morrissey hopes to open up a conversation about Niedecker’s ways of seeing and some ways we might “carry our clarity with us.”

About the Speaker

Patrick Morrissey’s third book of poems, Light Box, was published by Verge Books in 2023. His essays have appeared recently in Annulet: A Journal of Poetics, Chicago Review, and Textual Practice. He teaches at the University of Chicago.
