Bruce Weigl Poetry Reading
Bruce Weigl’s journey away from Northeast Ohio, and now back to it, is an archetypal American story. Born and raised in Lorain, and sent to Vietnam after high school, Weigl survived to become one of America’s most admired poets: an eloquent spokesman for an entire generation of Americans whose lives were broken by the war and a country whose moral confusion has desperately needed addressing. His unflinchingly honest poems, about Vietnam and about America, have brought him critical praise and a wide readership; his recent volume of new and selected poems, Archeology of the Circle, and prose memoir, The Circle of Hahn, have confirmed his eminence. He will read from his own work, as well as read some of his translations from the Vietnamese, and talk about about Vietnamese literature and culture.
