This symposium marked a homecoming for all things related to A.R. Ammons. In honor of one of its most famous and talented alumni, Wake Forest University hosted a symposium examining his poetry, art, and letters, as well as his contributions to American culture and the arts. The symposium had three central themes:

  • Ammons’ genius in poetry
  • Ammons’ work as a gifted painter
  • Ammons’ personal writings expressed through a dramatic performance of his love letters to his fiancĂ©e
