Joan Shelley Rubin: Neilly Series Lecture

Date

Description

The Critic, The Reader, and The Poet: Literary Authority in Postwar America: Belligerent readers and a beleaguered critic are the topic of the first presenter of the Neilly Series, Joan Shelly Rubin, professor of history at the University of Rochester. Ms. Rubin will discuss the controversy that ensued in the later 1950s when poetry editor John Giardi attacked the work of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, wife of Charles Lindbergh, in the Saturday Review of Literature. This lecture stems from Ms. Rubin's larger research project on the practices and values governing Americans' uses of poetry, for which she received a Guggenheim Fellowship. She is co-editor of a collaborative History of the Book in America, a project supported, in part, by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
