Robert Pinsky

Robert Pinsky has done something few other poets have done. He appeared, as himself, on an episode of The Simpsons.

He is also the librettist for Death and the Powers, a new opera, with robots, by composer and creative director Tod Machover, professor of music and media and director of the Opera of the Future group at the MIT Media Lab.

Throughout his career, Pinsky has been dedicated to identifying and invigorating poetry's place in the world. He shows everyone that poetry is a living, dynamic, and musical art form.

As poet laureate, Pinsky founded the Favorite Poem Project, in which thousands of Americans—of varying backgrounds, all ages, and from every state—shared their favorite poems.

Pinsky received a B.A. from Rutgers University, and earned an M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from Stanford University, where he was a Stegner Fellow in creative writing.

He is the author of several collections of poetry, including Gulf Music: Poems (Farrar, Straus & Giroux: 2007); Jersey Rain (2000); The Figured Wheel: New and Collected Poems 1966-1996 (1996), which received the 1997 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize and was a Pulitzer Prize nominee; The Want Bone (1990); History of My Heart (1984); An Explanation of America (1980); and Sadness and Happiness (1975).

Pinsky has taught at both Wellesley College and the University of California, Berkeley, and currently teaches in the graduate writing program at Boston University.

The Liberal Arts Symposium is cosponsored by Liberal Arts, the Office for Cultural Diversity and Inclusion, and the Office of Faculty Development.
