Poet Mario Susko Speaks at “Poetry of Witness” Class

mario-susko

Croatian poet and Bosnian war witness and survivor Mario Susko was recently a guest speaker at Professor Connie Roberts’ MFA course, “Poetry of Witness”. Although he described some events in his life of nightmarish brutality, his great sense of humor and warmth was on full display. Professor Roberts said afterward, “If ever there was a person to write poetry of witness – although, he dislikes the term – Mario is the man. There was much humor tonight, but levity is one way of dealing with pain, with the ‘absurdity’ of war.” Mr. Susko is pictured above with MFA students Dayna G. Troisi, Nicole A. Anania, Deysi M. Aguilar, and Tyler Thier.
