Reading and Lecture by Stephen Dunn

Stephen Dunn

Poet Stephen Dunn is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for his book, Different Hours. Among his other awards are three National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellowships, an Academy Award in Literature for The American Academy of Arts & Letters, and Fellowships from the Gunnenheim and Rockefeller Foundations. His book, Local Time, was a winner of the National Poetry Series in 1986.

Of Different Hours, poet G. E. Murray states that Dunn's poetry provides "graceful, fearless insights into the riches and ravages of middle age." Dunn's poems are marked by a simple, conversational tone, which "quietly surrounds the reader with recognitions that both inform and surprise."

Dunn is the author of eleven books of poetry, including Loosestrife and Riffs & Reciprocities: Prose Pairs. A new and expanded edition of Dunn's volume, Walking Light: Memoirs and Essays on Poetry, was issued by BOA Editions, Ltd. in 2001.

Stephen Dunn lives in New Jersey and is the Distinguished Professor of Creative Writing at Richard Stockton College.
