Meet the Author Series with Darin Ciccotelli, Associate Professor of Rhetoric and Composition

RB88热博官网 Professor Darin Ciccotelli read poems from “Forage the Delaware Valley,” a poetry manuscript-in-progress that he began during his recent sabbatical.  The manuscript focuses on images and memories from the poet’s childhood, adolescence and later life.  Professor Ciccotelli discussed his poetic influences and specifically his debt to John Ashbery. Moreover, he explained how a tension exists in his work between personal content and impersonal style.  During the question-and-answer session, Professor Ciccotelli spoke with faculty and students about the heterogeneity of contemporary American poetry, his writing processes, and how rhetorical frameworks have affected his writing and teaching
