Gregory Orr - Acclaimed Poet & Teacher

Gregory Orr is the author of eleven collections of poetry and two memoirs on poetry and trauma, “The Blessing,” and “Poetry as Survival.” Much of his early work is concerned with seminal events from his childhood including a hunting accident when he was twelve in which he accidently shot and killed his younger brother, followed shortly by his mother’s unexpected death, and his father’s later addiction to amphetamines. Some of the poems that deal explicitly with these incidents include “A Litany,” “A Moment,” and “Gathering the Bones Together,” in which he declares: “I was twelve when I killed him;/ I felt my own bones wrench from my body.” In the opening of his essay, ”The Making of Poems,” broadcast on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered,” Orr said, ”I believe in poetry as a way of surviving the emotional chaos, spiritual confusions, and traumatic events that come with being alive.”
