March 24 – July 30, 2010
“The Poet’s Eye: Literary Broadsides from Special Collections” is the spring 2010 exhibit in the William E. Simon Room in honor of National Poetry Month in April. Broadsides are one-sided, single-sheet publications, usually combining text and image. They are often quite beautiful, with letterpress printing, original artwork, and handmade paper. Literary figures represented in the exhibit include: William Blake, Lucille Clifton, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Yusef Komunyakaa, Theodore Roethke, W.D. Snodgrass, Wallace Stevens, Henry David Thoreau, and William Carlos Williams.
