Jorie Graham



Jorie Graham’s haunting, questioning poems of the inner life share a severity and quickness of perception with Emily Dickinson’s work. A recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, Graham received praise from James Tate for taking on “nothing less than the whole body of our history, reshaping myth in ways that risk new knowledge.” Her poetry collections include Never, Swarm, and The Dream of the Unified Field: Selected Poems 1974–1994, which won the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
