Irving Feldman, poet and Emeritus Distinguished Professor of English, arrived in Buffalo in 1964 to become an integral part of that decade’s now legendary UB English Department. A recipient of a National Institute of Arts and Letters award, a National Endowment for the Arts grant, as well as fellowships from the Academy of American Poets, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Ingram Merrill Foundation, and The MacArthur Foundation’s “genius” fellowship, Feldman remained in Buffalo and made the city his home. He is UB’s and Buffalo’s most distinguished and renowned poet.
Feldman’s collections of poetry include All of Us Here (1986), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award; The Pripet Marshes (1965) and Leaping Clear (1976), both finalists for the National Book Award; and Works and Days (1961), winner of the Kovner Poetry Prize of the Jewish Book Council.
Collected Poems 1954-2004 was published by Schocken Books in 2004.
The reception is free and open to the public and will include light refresh- ments. In collaboration with Talking Leaves Bookstore, copies of Collected Poems 1954-2004 will be available for purchase.
