Overview


A former United States poet laureate, winner of a Pulitzer Prize, and recipient of numerous grants and awards, Mona Van Duyn has been hailed as one of our greatest living American poets. To help broaden and uniquely inform our understanding of Van Duyn's work, editor Michael Burns has gathered ten essays, a poem, a succinct biographical sketch, and Van Duyn's own laureate address to the Library of Congress. Filled with keen prose by distinguished poets and critics, this collection is not only a resounding tribute to one poet's body of work, but also a timely pulse-taking of the literary scene surrounding Van Duyn's poetry.
