Creativity in Isolation: Charles Bernstein

May 12, 2020

By Nancy Kuhl

We asked 2019 Bollingen Prize-winning poet Charles Bernstein what he has been thinking about, working on, and reading in this time of isolation and quarantine. In response, he shared a reading of his recent essay: “Poetry Month Will Come a Little Late This Year.”

This essay was first published on the Chicago Blog of the University of Chicago Press on April 13, 2020. Bernstein recorded this reading from his home on May 4, 2020.

A detailed list of the poet’s archive at Beiencke library can be found online here: Charles Bernstein Papers.
