Poet Lisa Taylor appears at Newport Library

Posted: Friday, Mar 22nd, 2013

Lisa Taylor

The Newport Public Library will host a reading by poet Lisa C. Taylor at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27.

Taylor’s fourth poetry collection, “Necessary Silence,” was published in early 2013. Its poems explore the range of human vulnerability, from strangers meeting in a grocery line, “forgetting how invisible we all are for most of our lives,” to a Virgin Mary sighting. In this image rich collection, tones of despair and celebration comingle, “a parade of contrast” showing the resilience of the human spirit.

Taylor also has two published chapbooks, “Talking to Trees” and “Insufficient Thanks,” and a full-length collaborative collection of poetry with Irish poet and writer, Geraldine Mills, “The Other Side of Longing.” “The Other Side of Longing” was chosen for the Elizabeth Shanley Gerson Honor at University of Connecticut, and both Taylor and her co-writer, Mills, were lecturers of Irish Literature in 2011.
