Off the Shelf: Harrison King McCann Professor of English Marilyn Reizbaum


This is the latest episode of Off the Shelf, in which we ask a professor about a special or important book in their office. To make it somewhat impromptu, we select a shelf from which the professor then must select a book. In this video, English professor Marilyn Reizbaum talks about a book from her shelf of poetry. (Before she pulled out a favorite book, she added the disclaimer that she finds it challenging to select just one book because she believes so many are great.)
