Curriculum Vitae

David Yezzi’s latest books of poetry are Birds of the Air and Black Sea (Carnegie Mellon). His verse play Schnauzer, produced by the Baltimore Poets Theater in 2017, was published by Exot Books in 2019. A former director of the Unterberg Poetry Center of the 92nd Street Y in New York, he edits The Hopkins Review.

David Yezzi teaches courses on narrative poetry (from Homer to the present) and on the dramatic element in lyric poetry, as well as “Performing Fiction & Poetry,” which combines literary and theatrical practice to further develop an awareness of literature as a spoken art form.
