Catalog Number: 20080711, 20070309

Known for her poetry that is linguistically brash, playful and dazzling, this National Book Award finalist's public reading at the Midwest Poets Series at Rockhurst University lives up to that description. Suggestive and often humorous, Heather McHugh, a writer-in-residence for the University of Washington in Seattle, reads from her collections Hinge and Sign: Poems 1968-93 and Eyeshot, along with some new works that challenge the standard assumptions of English grammar and syntax.
