"Wojahn's lyric intensity, combined with his recent formal experimentation, makes his body of work one of the most significant in American poetry,"
O.B. Hardison, Jr. Poetry Prize judge Sarah Kennedy.
From examining Stalin's library habits and listening to James Brown, to watching Elvis Presley and mining today's political ground, David Wojahn's poems demand attention by priming each layer of language with nuances and reflections that are both subtle and brilliant.
Wojahn is the author of six collections of poetry and a collection of essays entitled Strange Good Fortune. Currently a professor of English and director of creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University, Wojahn is also a faculty member of the MFA in Writing program at Vermont College.
