Ann Heilmann (Cardiff University),

Jarlath Killeen (Trinity College Dublin),

ALA 2017: Gwendolyn Brooks at 100

In “Gwendolyn Brooks at 73,” Haki Madhubuti compared Brooks’s mind to “a tornado redefining the landscape.” The landscape of contemporary literature has been changed by her poems: “poems with muscle and sinew, poems that weren’t afraid to take the language and revamp it, twist it and energize it so that it shimmied and dashed and lingered,” in the words of Rita Dove. At least two new collections—Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku’s Revise the Psalm, and Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar, and Patricia Smith’s The Golden Shovel Anthology—will celebrate her centennial in 2017.

The panel will explore the following questions:
