The Second Annual Morton Marcus Poetry Reading and Poetry Archive

Kay Ryan gave a wonderful reading last night. She introduced each of her poems with dry and sardonic wit, preparing us for poems that made their points quickly and suddenly, and with a perfection reinforced by subtle rhyme. cheap domain . Gary Young, the poet laureate of Santa Cruz, was our host, and poets Shirley Ancheta and Jeff Tagami gave superb readings.

Prior to the reading, the University of Santa Cruz’s Special Collections department opened an exhibition of Mort’s personal papers, manuscripts, and recordings. The exhibition won’t be open to the public until January 2012 but we got a great preview of a beautiful space for studying rare books.
