Paul Cummins discusses and signs Paul Cummins: The Collected Poems


At a Special Time - 12 noon!

Paul Cummins, a renowned educator and social justice activist, entered the world of poetry in 1966 while writing a doctoral dissertation on the poetry of twice Pulitzer-prize winning Richard Wilbur at USC. This book, selected from the nearly 600 poems written between 1966-2017, since then, offers a clear and often inspiring voice, with brilliant and sacred imagery all the while allowing for uncommon accessibility. This volume includes sonnets, prose poems, odes as well as various metered, and stanzaic poems.

Cummins, likens the absolute quiet that he requires to create as his own mini temple. Where usually the act of creation is deliberate, sometimes it startled Cummins: "Sometimes, poems just appear, such as 'Red Rover' which wrote itself in the my head while driving, and I had to pull over on the side of the rode to capture it."
