The Charles Eliot Norton Professorship in Poetry was endowed in 1925 by C.C. Stillman (Harvard 1898). Incumbents are in residence through their tenure of the Chair, and deliver six lectures. The term "poetry" is interpreted in the broadest sense, including all poetic expression in language, music, or fine arts. Previous holders of the Chair include Gilbert Murray (1926-27), T.S. Eliot (1932-33), Igor Stravinsky (1939-40), Paul Hindemith (1949-50), Ben Shahn (1956-57), Leonard Bernstein (1972-73), Frank Stella (1982-84), John Cage (1988-89), and Luciano Berio (1992-93).

The Norton Lecturer in 2014 is Herbie Hancock.
