Two upcoming appearances. Well, actually three. The first is two-for-one.
On Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, 2018, I will be participating in two panels at the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900.
On Friday, February 23, I'll be a respondent on a panel including the work of the great poet Márton Koppány. Here's one of Márton's poems.
And here's a photo of Márton at Lake Balaton in Hungary.
Then, on Saturday, February 24, I will be participating on a panel in honor of Nathaniel Tarn's ninetieth birthday, which is coming later this year. I'll be speaking about Messianic Time in Tarn's late poetry, which is magnificent. (The late poetry, that is. Messianic time, which I've only ever intuited, will also very likely be magnificent.)
Here is a photo of Tarn and myself, taken in Santa Fe in July 2016. Look at that beautiful Cultural Society t-shirt.
Back in Chicago, on Thursday, March 1, 2018, at 4:30 p.m. in Swift Hall at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago, I will be speaking about Thick and Dazzling Darkness for the Lumen Christi Institute. Here are the details for the event. There's a full Moon opposed to the Sun conjunct Neptune, so it's bound to be mystically potent. I'll be speaking among other things on the work of Frank Samperi, Fanny Howe, Joseph Donahue, and Pam Rehm.
So, what are you waiting for? HURRY UP PLEASE IT'S TIME.
