Hearing the Old Man: Poems of the Old Man of the Mountain


Presented as part of our 2023 An Enduring Presence: The Old Man of the Mountain Event Series. This event is supported by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grants.

Join host Midge Goldberg and several New Hampshire poets to “hear” the Old Man through contemporary (and a few older) poems about The Old Man of the Mountain and the White Mountains.

Midge Goldberg is the editor of the anthology Outer Space: 100 Poems, published by Cambridge University Press in December 2022. Her third collection of poetry, To Be Opened After My Death, was published by Kelsay Books in 2021. Her book Snowman’s Code received the Richard Wilbur Poetry Award as well as the 2016 NH Literary Awards Readers Choice in Poetry. She lives in New Hampshire with her family, two cats, and an ever-changing number of chickens.
