Poet, prose poet, and critic Mark DuCharme visits us from his home in
Boulder to read from his debut collection Cosmopolitan Tremble,
just out from Ohios Pavement Saw Press. "I would have gotten
banished from the Eighth Grade for such care,/Unbaring causes in the demented
stairwell/A grace to be born & end walking in air." As Cole Swenson
says, "Its a brainy engagement with the real world expanded
by the forces of language --". DuCharmes critical work includes
"Orpheus in the Echo Chamber: Jack Spicers Poetics of Community".
Since 1998 he has co-directed the Left Hand Reading Series in Boulder.
