Harvard’s English Dept. has cancelled their scheduled Tom Paulin lecture (Tom Gross reported on this morning). From the Harvard English Department’s website:
Announcement: By mutual consent of the poet and the English Department, the Morris Gray poetry reading by Tom Paulin, originally scheduled for Thursday, November 14th, will not take place. The English Department sincerely regret the widespread consternation that has arisen as a result of this invitation, which had been originally decided on last winter solely on the basis of Mr. Paulin’s lifetime accomplishments as a poet.
- Lawrence Buell, Chair
