Rickey Laurentiis
Date and Time: 
April 26, 2017 - 7:00PM
Event Location: 
Poets House
Admission: 
$10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members

Though Paul Valéry claimed “a poem is never finished, only abandoned,” what happens between a poem’s creation and its abandonment is revision. Poet Rickey Laurentiis unpacks what it means to return and revise, until, like Michelangelo, you find the angel in the marble and set it free.

Presented as part of the Emerging Poets Fellowship public lecture series, with support from the Jerome Foundation
