Philosophy Professor Unveils StatueProfessor and Sculptor Stefanie Rocknak’s Work Comes to Fruition In Boston


Edgar Allan Poe has returned to his hometown of Boston in the form of a statue, thanks to the creativity of Hartwick professor and sculptor Stefanie Rocknak. The statue was unveiled on Sunday, October 5, in a ceremonial celebration of Poe’s life and works. Professor Rocknak reflected on the unveiling, saying “The event was fantastic.” A number of remarkable people from Boston—including the mayor, Marty Walsh, and a formal national poet laureate, Robert Pinsky—made an appearance. Hartwick College was also represented at the ceremony, not only by our own Professor Rocknak, but also by alumni and other professors.
