Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney opens the 73rd season of the Poetry Center at the 92Y uptown. He’ll read from his new collection of poems, "Human Chain,” which, according to the Guardian’s review, "muses upon heredity and absent friends with restraint and rich imagery.” One of the few modern poets to achieve household-name status, Heaney came to world renowned when he picked up the highest honors in poetry in 1995. Tonight he’ll be introduced by Asturo Riley, whose name, like many contemporary bards might not be on your radar. Among lyrical aficionados, the California-based poet is recognized for his distinctive "percussive, consonant-rich, free-verse poems that conjure up the elemental images of the lives of people inhabiting a specific, acutely portrayed landscape,” according to the Poetry Foundation. These masters of description will give you a whole new sense of appreciation for the richness of language.
