About the Author

Born in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, C.D. Wright has received numerous honors for her fifteen-plus collections of poetry, including the National Book Critics Circle Award (2010). Wright taught at Brown University for over thirty years until she passed away in 2016.


"C.D. Wright belongs to a school of exactly one."--Joel Brouwer, The New York Times "Wright has found a way to wed fragments of an iconic America to a luminously strange idiom, eerie as a tin whistle."--The New Yorker "C.D. Wright has been writing some of the greatest poetry-cum-prose you can find in American literature."--Dave Eggers "For me C.D. Wright's poetry is river gold."--Michael Ondaatje "CD Wright's is a poetry of Southern mountain vision brought to the streets in a language of brilliant synaesthesia, colloquial warmth and laconic wit... a saxophone playing and a poignant voice making sense."--Carolyn Forché "This is poetry as white phosphorus, written with merciless love and depthless can we react to a poetry this alive with invention and purpose but with joy?"--Judges' Citation, Griffin Poetry Prize (2009) "Expertly elliptical phrasings, and an uncounterfeitable, generous feel for real people, bodies and places, have lately made Wright one of America's oddest, best and most appealing poets."--Publishers Weekly "No single description adequately captures Wright's work; she is an experimental writer, a Southern writer and a socially committed writer, yet she continuously reinvents herself with each new volume."--MacArthur Foundation (2004)
