It wasn’t an Edward Hopper canvas Canadian-born poet (and former Library of Congress poet laureate) Mark Strand was contemplating when he wrote, “The things our vision wills us to contain—/The life of objects, their unbearable weight/This melancholy moment will remain….” But Strand has written a monograph on Hopper’s melancholy cityscapes, which will provide the basis for his slide-illustrated lecture, “Edward Hopper: A Poet’s Perspective.” At 7 p.m. at the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s Hammer Auditorium, 17th & New York Ave. NW. $16.
