David Zachary Finch

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' David Zachary Finch, an assistant professor of English at the College, recently received the John N. Serio Award for the best published article on poet Wallace Stevens at the annual convention of the Modern Language Association in Chicago.

Finch's essay, "He That of Repetition is Most Master: Stevens and the Poetics of Mannerism," was published in The Wallace Stevens Journal in fall 2012.

Judges for the award praised Finch's analysis for being “grounded in both a knowledge of the history of mannerism since the Renaissance and also critical theory. It is an original and exciting approach that promises to open the field for future criticism."

"It was a real honor to have some of these very critics acknowledge and celebrate my own ideas about Stevens," Finch said. "Stevens has always inspired and influenced my work as a poet. Because his writing is notoriously complex, several years ago I began trying to understand my personal attraction to his poetry in greater detail by writing some criticism about it."

Finch, who teaches a range of literary and creative writing courses at MCLA — including poetry — also is the faculty advisor to "Spires," the campus' literary magazine. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Dartmouth College, his Master of Education at the Warren Wilson Program for Writers, and his doctrate from SUNY-Buffalo.
