I recently met a new young professor named Tung-Hui Hu from the English department who just graduated from UC Berkeley’s film studies program. It turns out that he is a very talented poet too. The Los Angeles Times describes his work as a "contained surreal style that deftly shapes a philosophical argument." Check out this review of his second book of poetry, Mine, in Raintaxi Review of Books. Two poems from his forthcoming collection, Greenhouses, Lighthouses, can be found at the University of Mississippi, where he was poet-in-residence. He is also doing a really interesting sound installation called The Last Time You Cried on exhibit at the Michigan League and U-M Art and Architecture Building March 24 to April 6.
It is spring in Ann Arbor, time for poetry. (click on link for more)
