Poetry: Maureen McLane

Maureen McLane is the author of two volumes of poems, Same Life (2008) and the forthcoming World Enough, and a prose study, Romanticism and the Human Sciences: Poetry, Population, and the Discourse of the Species. Formerly the chief poetry critic of the Chicago Tribune, she has written about poetry, fiction, teaching, and sexuality for the Tribune, the New York Times, the Boston Review, and elsewhere. She has taught at Harvard and is currently at NYU.


This series of readings is organized and hosted by Stephen Yenser, poet and professor at UCLA and author of A Boundless Field: American Poetry at Large and Blue Guide.

Poetry is supported, in part, by the UCLA Department of English and Friends of English.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee.
