Poet Rita Dove to read at Rackham
By Lisa Nicholas and
The poet, Rita Dove, as part of
the UM Visiting Writer Series
will be reading from her work on
Tuesday, September 23, at 4:oo
p.m., in the Rackham East
conference room. A graduate of
the Iowa 'Writer's Workshop,
Dove has received both a National
Endowment for the Arts and a
At the forefront of American
It is with great regret
that we inform you of the
recent death of Chris Dunn.
Dunn was a great
contributer to the campus radio
*station WCBN-FM, and was
probably best known there as
the co-host of the weekly
program "Godzilla Theatre," an
innovative aural collage.
Dunn had gone to the
University School of Art and
enjoyed working with paint and
silkscreens. His broad
knowledge of music led him to
write for severaldmusic
magazines, including Option
and Sound Choice. This
summer he was a contributing
Arts writer to The Michigan
Daily. Last month he began
working at Wazoo Records.
Dunn passed away early
Friday morning due to a heart
condition. He was a creative,
jovial spirit whose loss will be
felt throughout the Ann Arbor

College, Chris Dunn Fund.
contemporary poetry, Dove often
explores in her work the presence
of blacks in American history.
Stylistically, Dove's intensity of
imagery intrigues. Indeed, a
hallmark of her style is her
remarkable ability to create
systems of images that
themselves speak for the poems.
Her collections include Ten
Poems (1977), The Only Dark Spot
in the Sky (1980), The Yellow
House on the Corner (1980),
Mandolin (1982), and Museum
(1983). Her work is also included
in the anthology New American
Poets of The 80's.
The Great Palaces of Versailles
Nothing nastier than a white person!
She mutters as she irons alterations
in the backroom of Charlotte's Dress Shoppe.
The steam rising from a cranberry wool
comes alive with perspiration
and stale Evening of Paris.
Swamp she born from, swamp
she swallow, swamp she got to sink again.
The iron shoves gently
into a gusset, waits until
the puckers bloom away. Beyond
the curtain, the white girls are all
wearing shoulder pads to make their faces
delicate. That laugh would be Autumn,
tossing her hair in imitation of Bacall.
Beulah had read in the library
how French ladies at court would tuck
their fans in a sleeve
and walk in the gardens for air. Swaying
among lilies, lifting shy layers of silk,
they dropped excrement as daintily
as handkerchieves. Against all rules
she had saved the lining from a botched coat
to face last year's gray skirt. She knows
whenever she lifts a knee
she flashes crimson. That seems legitimate;
but in the book she had read
how thecavaliere amused themselves
wearing powder and perfume and spraying
yellow borders knee-high on the stucco
of the Orangerie.
A hanger clatters
in the front of the shoppe.
Beulah remembers how
even Autumn could lean into a settee
with her ankles crossed, sighing
I need a man who'll protect me
while smoking her cigarette down to the very end.
