    Lexington Community Education presents:  An Evening with Galway Kinnell

    During his career in poetry that spans five decades and twelve collections, Kinnell has received the Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award, the Frost Medal, The Wallace Stevens Prize, and a MacArthur Fellowship. In the nomination for the 2003 National Book Award, the judges called Kinnell “America's preeminent visionary” whose work “greets each new age with rapture and abundance [and] sets him at the table with his mentors: Rilke, Whitman, Frost.”

    Kinnell’s volumes of poetry include Strong Is Your Hold (Houghton Mifflin, 2006); A New Selected Poems; Imperfect Thirst; When One Has Lived a Long Time Alone; Selected Poems ; The Past; Mortal Acts, Mortal Words; The Book of Nightmares; Body Rags; Flower Herding on Mount Monadnock; and What a Kingdom It Was. He is the editor of The Essential Whitman. He has also published translations of works by Yves Bonnefoy, Yvan Goll, and François Villon, and Rainer Maria Rilke.
    He is renowned as an especially sensuous poet and moving reader. By giving public reading since 1960, Kinnell has been influential in making the poetry reading apart of our cultural life.
