The Grammarians Toast Violi

Hosted by Marty Correia

Friday, May 6, 2011 @ Dixon Place, 161 Chrystie Street

Poet Paul Violi died April 2, 2011, leaving many New York City creative writing students mourning their beloved professor. Those who wished to hear Violi’s work and share memories were invited to this free, public event.

Paul Violi wrote eleven books of poetry, including Overnight, Fracas, The Curious Builder, Likewise, and Breakers, a selection of his longer poems. Widely published and anthologized both in the U.S. and abroad, he received two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in poetry as well as many other arts grants throughout his prolific career. Recipient of the Morton Dauwen Zabel Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters (2001), and the John Ciardi Lifetime Achievement Award in Poetry (2004), just to name a few, Paul Violi’s work continues to resonate.
