Marie Howe: Neilly Series Lecture
Marie Howe’s new volume of poetry, The Kingdom of Ordinary Time, explores the difference between the self and the soul, the secular and the sacred, and where is the kingdom of heaven? How does one live in Ordinary Time—during those periods that are not apparently miraculous?
Howe has authored two previous books of poetry, The Good Thief and What the Living Do, and co-edited a book of essays, In the Company of My Solitude: American Writing from the AIDS
Pandemic. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Poetry, and the Harvard Review. She currently teaches creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College.
The lecture was introduced by Friederike Seligman, Assistant Professor of Russian.
