Former Poet Laureate Charles Simic at the Black Mountain Institute’s Forum on Contemporary Cultures

Distinguished speakers and writers from across the nation and globe who specialize in literature, politics, social issues and international affairs are part of this year’s thought-provoking lecture series hosted by the Black Mountain Institute’s Forum on Contemporary Cultures.

2007 U.S. Poet Laureate Charles Simic, the author of eighteen collections of poetry, is also an essayist, translator, editor and professor emeritus of creative writing and literature at the University of New Hampshire. He won the Pulitzer Prize in 1990 for his book of prose poems The World Doesn't End, and his 1996 collection, Walking the Black Cat, was a finalist for the National Book Award for Poetry. His most recent poetry volume is That Little Something (2008).
