Poetry of Father Michael Costanzo Featured at Italian American Community Center Event
Father Michael Costanzo, assistant professor of Religious Studies, was recently in the spotlight as the featured guest at the Italian American Community Center Education Committee’s Poetry Reading event on October 21.
His third book, entitled “Water Lilies,” was published this past summer and has 80 pages full of poetry in English, Italian and French. It contains a selection from four of his previously unpublished books, which are named Whirlwind, Vanitas, Clorofilla, and Sunrise, Sunset. Each section has its own set of poems, reflecting the title of the book.
A poet since he was 11 years old, Fr. Costanzo has published two other books of poetry, including “A Vision of Beauty” (2006) and “Out of Paradise” (2008).
