Pulitzer Prize Winner Philip Levine Named Poet Laureate

The New York Times reports The Library of Congress has appointed Philip Levine, “best known for his big-hearted, Whitmanesque poems about working-class Detroit,” as the next Poet Laureate. 

Here’s a podcast from his appearance at 92nd Street Y Unterberg Poetry Center in November of 2001. It features the entirety of that reading, which included “On the Meeting of Garcia Lorca and Hart Crane,” “My Father With Cigarette Twelve Years Before the Nazis Could Break His Heart” and “Two Voices.”

Mr. Levine has read at the Poetry Center nine times over the years, most recently in 2009 with Rita Dove.

The 92Y Poetry 2011/12 season kicks off September 26 with Seamus Heaney
