Join former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky as he explores the groundbreaking terrain of two American masters, Frost and Williams, whose distinctly different poetic oeuvres are united by a common interest in the American idiom and the collective American memory. Pinsky's talk inaugurates the Spring 2007 season of Branching Out NYC events, which will feature E. Ethelbert Miller on Langston Hughes (on March 6) and Susan Stewart on Anna Akhmatova (April 17).
