Poets of Lent: Louise Gluck
Friday, March 8 at 3:30


We’ll read and discuss a handful of poems by the Nobel laureate, who died this past fall. Not traditionally considered a “spiritual” poet, Gluck’s work nonetheless engages mystery, doubt, and reconciliation. Sandra Lim, an award-winning Boston-based poet, will help lead our conversation.

What will the soul do for solace then?
I tell myself maybe it won’t need
these pleasures anymore;
maybe just not being is simply enough,
hard as that is to imagine.
(“The Night Migrations”)
