Geoffrey Nutter Poems and Poetry
Play • 46 min

Planet Poet-Words in Space  – NEW PODCAST!  LISTEN to my February 15th, 2022 WIOX show featuring returning guest, the remarkable poet and teacher Geoffrey Nutter. Geoffrey reads poems from his latest collection, Giant Moth Perishes, and shares his brilliance and exuberance about poetry including his lightheartedly profound wrangling of the comparative mysteries of Wallace Stevens’ “Anecdote of the Jar” and Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale.”

 Planet Poet’s endlessly interesting Poet-At-Large Pamela Manché Pearce also joins us on the show with her entertainingly erudite musings on a common obsession among writers: their typewriters!

 Geoffrey Nutter is the author of Giant Moth Perishes (Wave Books, 2021), A Summer Evening (winner of the 2001 Colorado Prize), Water’s Leaves & Other Poems (Winner of the 2004 Verse Press Prize), Christopher Sunset (winner of the 2011 Sheila Motton Book Award), The Rose of January (Wave Books, 2013), and Cities at Dawn (Wave Books, 2016). He recently traveled in China, giving lectures, workshops, and readings as a participant in the Sun Yat-sen University Writers’ Residency. Geoffrey’s poems have been translated into Spanish, French, and Mandarin. Soir d’été, a bilingual edition of his poems translated into French by poets Molly Lou Freeman and Julien Marcland, was recently published in France, and a German translation of his book Water’s Leaves & Other Poems will appear in 2021. He has taught poetry at Princeton, Columbia, University of Iowa, NYU, the New School, and 92nd Street Y. He currently teaches Greek and Latin Classics at Queens College. He runs the Wallson Glass Poetry Seminars in New York City.
