If you believe in beauty, mystery, and the complexity of human emotion--and if you want to connect through those things to other human beings--then read a poem.

The Emily Dickinson Archive, providing digital access to the poet’s surviving ephemera, is live. And has sparked all kinds of scholarly infighting! “They have the furniture, we have the daguerreotype; they have the herbarium, we have the hair,” says one archivist.

    Mark Strand’s final event - Poetry Reading at 7PM in Tishman

    A sneak peak of what’s to come for tonight’s poetry reading:

    Mystery and Solitude in Topeka

    BY MARK STRAND

    Afternoon darkens into evening. A man falls deeper and deeper into the slow spiral of sleep, into the drift of it, the length of it, through what feels like mist, and comes at last to an open door through which he passes without knowing why, then again without knowing why goes to a room where he sits and waits while the room seems to close around him and the dark is darker than any he has known, and he feels something forming within him without being sure what it is, its hold on him growing, as if a story were about to unfold, in which two characters, Pleasure and Pain, commit the same crime, the one that is his, that he will confess to again and again, until it means nothing.
