Please come to a reading and lecture at the University of Chicago this week by:

*************** William Fuller ****************

Thursday, October 30, 5:30 p.m. (Classics 10): Poetry reading

Friday, October 31, 1:00 p.m. (Classics 10): "Restatement of Trysts"

A reception will follow the reading on Thursday.


Drawing equally on Buddhist sutras and country blues, William Fuller's latest book, Sadly (Flood, 2003) derives compassion from its ironic vision. Quick and sometimes elusive, his poems observe fluctuations in economic markets, the weather, and human consciousness. In the Chicago Tribune, Maureen McClane has described Fuller's "dense, elliptical mediations," writing that his "luminous images…consistently marry the cerebral and the sensual." Fuller lives and works in Chicago.
