Poetry Focus: Poem by Rae Armantrout

Eyewear is very glad to feature the major American poet Rae Armantrout (pictured) this Saturday in London, and not just because she too wears eyewear.

Professor Armantrout, who is associated with the West Coast Language Poets, studied when younger with Denise Levertov.  She won the Pulitzer Prize in 2010 for her collection Versed, and her book Next Life was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year in 2007.  She has taught for may years at the University of California, at San Diego
