Robert Mezey, Professor Emeritus of English, Pomona College

Winner of the Lamont Poetry Prize the PEN Poetry Award, and many other garlands, Robert Mezey is a poet of wide experience, erudition, voice and form. The topics of his poems range from Thomas Hardy to Charles Starkweather to reflections on being a Jewish son. An explorer of poetic forms, he has written in blank verse, syllabics, ballads, sonnets, terza rima-even a haiku and a blues. His talents as a teacher found a welcoming home at Pomona College from 1976 until he retired in 1999. Professor Mezey will read from his works and talk about the art of teaching poetry.
