Poetry: Robin Robertson

Wednesday Nov 5, 2014 7:30 PM This is a past program

Scottish writer Robin Robertson has published five collections of poetry—most recently Hill of Doors—and has received a number of accolades, including the Petrarch Prize, the E. M. Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the Cholmondeley Award, and all three Forward Prizes. His selection of poems, Sailing the Forest, has just been released. 


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.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
