He has received a Pulitzer Prize, the Best Translated Book Award, and fellowships from the Library of Congress, the Guggenheim, Whiting, and United States Artists Foundations.
Gander's love for formal, even archaic language and the quiet complexity of his syntax can build striking abstract landscapes in which the material and spiritual worlds seem equally intelligent.--Tony Hoagland
A restlessly experimental writer.--Robert Hass
In Gander's follow up to his extraordinary book of loss and lamentation, Be With, (for which he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize), this poet of metaphysical abstraction, Eros, and intimate observation -- and even adulation -- of the natural world finds fresh metaphors for the sudden and uneasy onset of new love.-- "NPR"
Gander's verses have a shattering, symphonic quality.--Tess Taylor "The New York Times"
This is an ecologically aware, tender, and captivating work.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
Forrest Gander's new book of poetry, Twice Alive, is a lush, sensual addition to his formidable body of work.--Meryl Natchez "Los Angeles Review of Books"
