Mark DuCharme

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 Ohio’s 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, "It’s a brainy engagement with the real world expanded by the forces of language --". DuCharme’s critical work includes "Orpheus in the Echo Chamber: Jack Spicer’s Poetics of Community". Since 1998 he has co-directed the Left Hand Reading Series in Boulder.
