An Evening with Susan Howe

Susan Howe + New Dublin Press

Sunday, June 14 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Belvedere House, Great Denmark Street, Dublin 1

Susan Howe is one of the preeminent writers in the United States. We are extremely happy to present this evening of reading and conversation with Howe, in the wonderful venue of Belvedere House. Just two days before Bloomsday, we will hear Howe read from her remarkable body of work, followed by insights into her deep Irish roots and the contours of 20th and 21st-century poetry. 

Daughter of Dublin-born playwright and actor Mary Manning, Susan Howe was born in Boston in 1937. She returned to Dublin in 1955 to work in the Gate Theatre before embarking on a fine arts career. Subsequently, she emerged as one of the leading poets of her generation. Her important works include the groundbreaking My Emily DickinsonThe Midnight, and That This. Howe won the prestigious Bollingen Prize in 2011, placing her in the company of Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, John Ashbery and Adrienne Rich.
