It's National Poetry Month and we're doing things a little differently this month. Each week in April, we're inviting one poet from the Lesley community to share some of their verses and talk about their work. It's the final week of our National Poetry Month series, and we're joined by Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet Kevin Prufer, who reads and discusses 'The Translator,' a poem from his most recent collection The Art of Fiction.
Kevin is a faculty member in Lesley University low-residency MFA in Creative Writing program. Among his many awards are four Pushcart prizes. His poems have appeared in Best American Poetry multiple times. Kevin has written a number of poetry collections, including How He Loved Them, which was long-listed for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize and today he’s sharing a poem from his latest book, The Art of Fiction, which was released earlier this year.
