Alice Notley, Poetry Reading

13 February 2019


Wednesday 13 February, 7.00pm

A selection of readings by poet, Alice Notley.

Alice Notley (b.1945, Arizona) is an American Poet. She received a BA from Barnard College in 1967, and an MFA from the Writers’ Workshop at the University of Iowa in 1969. Relocating to the UK in 1974, Notley wrote her book Songs for the Unborn Second Baby (United Artists, 1979). While Notley had written on motherhood prior to Songs, this book was her first to focus fully on the matter and is the first full-length book of a New York School-affiliated poet to take on the task of addressing poetry's sexism and the pressures and setbacks of motherhood in both personal and creative life.
In the 1970s, she became rooted in New York City's Lower East Side, where she was an important force. In 1992, she moved to Paris, with her second husband, the British poet Douglas Oliver (1937–2000), where she is still based.
