Dubbed “the most popular poet in America,” Billy Collins is famous for conversational, witty poems that welcome readers with humor but often slip into quirky, tender, or profound observations on the everyday, reading and writing, and poetry itself. Collins’s level of fame is almost unprecedented in the world of contemporary poetry: his readings regularly sell out. He served two terms as the US poet laureate his latest book of poems is Whale Day And Other Poems. He will be joined by former UK Poet Laureate Sir Andrew Motion. A poet, novelist and biographer, he was Poet Laureate in the United Kingdom from 1999 to 2009. He founded the Poetry Archive, an online resource of poems and audio recordings of poets reading their own work. Known for narrative poems that often take up historical events in a meditative mode, Motion’s poetry manages clarity of expression while hinting at turbulent or unresolved depths. He has said of his own work, “I want my writing to be as clear as water. I want readers to see all the way through its surfaces into the swamp.” His latest collection of poems is titled, Randomly Moving Particles. He is the Homewood Professor of the Arts at Johns Hopkins University. This is a free talk, held live online via Crowdcast register and view here.
