A Reading by Philip Levine
On September 23, 2004, poet Philip Levine read at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as part of Poetic Principles. This series, sponsored by the Virginia Museum and New Virginia Review, Inc., brings to Richmond the best poets, writers, critics, and translators at work today. Following an introduction by David Wojahn, Levine read poems from The Mercy (Alfred A. Knopf, 2000) and from his latest book, Breath (Alfred A. Knopf, 2004), as well as several more recent poems.
