2008 marks the centenary of the birth of the American poet George Oppen.
>From his early "objectivist" volume Discrete Series (1934) to the spare
and enigmatic meditations of Primitive (1978), Oppen's work consistently
interrogated the relationship between poetry and sincerity and the ground
of political and ethical value. This conference will include major
scholars from both sides of the Atlantic (including keynote addresses
from Professor Marjorie Perloff of Stanford University and Professor
Peter Nicholls of Sussex University) in order to celebrate Oppen's
centenary and to consider key aspects of his artistic achievement and
legacy.
