Louise Gluck Poetry Reading

It is always interesting to hear a poet read their work. Last Thursday Louise Gluck did a wonderful job sharing her work with the students, faculty and other poetry lovers that came to her reading here at Governor's.

Ms. Gluck chose a variety of poems spanning her 11 books. She also talked about the time in between her books and how stressful it was to be stalled in the lag time between inspiration. I really enjoyed that Ms. Gluck talked about her difficulties with writing. It is comforting for all aspiring writers to know that it is even hard for the professionals.
