Trying to See the Trees: A Talk and a Poetry Reading by Joseph Stanton

September 28, 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Hawai’i State Library, 478 S. King Street

An event in celebration of the Hawai'i State Library’s 100th anniversary

Poet Joseph Stanton will read a selection of his poems from his Hawai'i collection, A Field Guide to the Wildlife of Suburban O'ahu, but most of the poetry subjects addressed in his presentation will be the choice of the audience. He will advocate for the art of poetry and will be hoping to persuade the audience that poetry is the primary literary art. There is something for everyone in Stanton’s poems, which take inspiration from nature, movies, baseball, fairy tales, noh plays, Hawai'i places and people, popular music, paintings, and a wide variety of other things. Joseph Stanton is the author of four books of poetry and has published more than 300 poems in such literary magazines as Poetry, Poetry East, Harvard Review, New York Quarterly, and Bamboo Ridge. Stanton’s awards include the Cades Award for Literature, the Tony Quagliano International Poetry Award, and the Ka Palapala Po'okela Award for Excellence in Literature. He is a Professor of Art History and American Studies at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa.
