Helen Vendler to Give
Turnbull Memorial Poetry Lecture

Renowned literary critic Helen Vendler will give the Percy Graeme Turnbull Memorial Lecture at 5:30pm on Thursday, Feb. 10, in 110 Maryland Hall on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Vendler's talk is titled, "The Yeatsian Sequence: Forms of Poetry in 'Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen.'" Attendees are asked to read the poem in advance and to come to the lecture with copy of the poem, which can be downloaded and printed from www.jhu.edu/writsem/turnbull/vendler.htm.

Vendler, the A. Kingsley Porter University Professor at Harvard University, is the author of numerous books of poetry criticism, including Soul Says, The Music That Happens, The Breaking of Style, The Art of Shakespeare s Sonnets, On Extended Wings, The Given and the Made, and most recently, Poets Thinking: Pope, Whitman, Dickinson, Yeats.

The Turnbull Poetry Lecture, given through the generosity of a gift made in 1889 in memory of Percy Graeme Turnbull (1878-87), has brought to Homewood some of the most distinguished voices in American poetry and criticism, including Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, Marianne Moore, W.H. Auden, Charles Eliot Norton, R.P. Blackmur, Northrop Frye, W.S. Merwin and Harold Bloom.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the university's Writing Seminars at (410) 516-6286.
