Richard Hugo (1923-1982) was at the center of lively and interesting literary milieus as a young poet in Seattle and then as an influential teacher in Missoula, Montana. In this reading class, we’ll discuss key works by Hugo and his teachers, classmates, friends, and students, including Theodore Roethke, Carolyn Kizer, James Wright, David Wagoner, James Welch, Madeline DeFrees, William Kittredge, Annick Smith, James Crumley, Robert Wrigley, and others.
Ed Skoog is the author of two books of poems, Rough Day and Mister Skylight, both published by Copper Canyon Press. His poems have appeared in American Poetry Review, The Paris Review, Poetry, Poetry Northwest, and elsewhere. He has been writer-in-residence at the Hugo House and George Washington University and a visiting professor at the University of Montana.
