A Renaissance man or woman is a person who has broad intellectual interests and is accomplished in areas of both the arts and the sciences; a highly cultivated individual who is skilled and well-versed in many fields of knowledge, work, etc., as in the arts and sciences.
Two poets, B.A. Wingate and Mary Cisper, who will be featured in the upcoming Author Speaks series at 7 p.m. Thursday at Mesa Public Library’s upstairs rotunda, exemplify the definition of a Renaissance person.
Cisper said they are both planning to read from their work and discuss what inspires their poetry.
She added she is happy to share her work with the community in the Author Speaks series. “I feel very honored to be invited,” she said. “I’ve attended other readings there and enjoyed them very much.”
Wingate added, “Mary and I write poetry that is sympathetic to each other. It is often informed by the landscape or sense of place. (Our work) is existentially different … I am expecting to enjoy reading poems with her.”
Cisper and Wingate are scientists who have had long careers at Los Alamos National Laboratory and both are published poets.
