EMU poet distills decades of work in new anthology

Feb 2, 2016

Current State's Jamie Paisley speaks with a National Book Award winner and Guggenheim fellowship recipient, the Ypsilanti-based poet Clayton Eshleman, about his newly released ‘Sulfur Anthology.”


Clayton Eshleman is an Indiana-born poet who travelled the world but ended up not too far from home as a professor at Eastern Michigan University. For about 20 years, Eshleman published a magazine about poetry in its many facets, which has been compiled into a just-published anthology.

Eshleman talks with Current State’s Jamie Paisley about the project.

Clayton Eshleman will be making several appearances to discuss his various publications:

February 2nd, 7 p.m., Ann Arbor District Library, 343 S 5th Ave. Discussion about "A Sulfur Anthology," published recently by Wesleyan U Press.

February 16, EMU, 6:30-8 p.m., Auditorium G02 Halle Library. A slide lecture-reading on Upper Paleolithic cave art, based on his study Juniper Fuse (Wesleyan U Press, 2003).

March 7, Literati Bookstore, 124 E. Washington St., Ann Arbor. 7 p.m. A reading from "Clayton Eshleman-The Essential Poetry 1960-2015," published recently by Black Widow Press.
