Poet, Scholar, and Lecturer
will present her new book of poetry
A specialist in the work of Jane Kenyon and John Keats, Judith Harris received her Ph.D. in American and English Literature from George Washington University. In addition to her three poetry collections, Harris is the author of the critical book Signifying Pain, which applies the principles of thereapeutic writing to such painful life experiences as mental illness, suicide, racism, and domestic abuse. She has taught at universities in the Washington, D.C. area. Her poetry has appeared in The Nation, The Atlantic Monthly, The New Republic, Ploughshares, Slate, The Southern Review and other publications.
Reviews of Night Garden:
With her unwavering attention to mortality and the temporality of all things, even "the stars that are so heavy/ they burn themselves alive," Judith Harris always senses "just the right object/ to to illuminate, and recast into gold." Poem after poem, she moves far beyond the art of having written a lyric; she has lived it, and, in living it, has taken it--and us--to a transcendent place. Night Garden is Judith Harris's finest collection.
Judith Harris creates tableaux of memory and shines a keen light on the particulars of the natural world in these poignant, carefully observed, and scrupulously written poems that ache with mortality. Night Garden is an illuminating book.
