David Hobbs, The George Oppen Memorial Lecture: December 2, 2017
The Poetry Center presents the 33rd annual George Oppen Memorial Lecture featuring David B. Hobbs at the Unitarian Center. Hobbs's talk is titled "Oppen and His Early Others," and builds on his research on a formerly lost manuscript of Oppen’s early poetry which he discovered in Ezra Pound's papers, and subsequently edited for publication as 21 Poems by George Oppen (New Directions, 2017). The lecture is followed by his response to a question from Frances Richard, in the audience, then his reading of two of Oppen's early poems.
