About the Author
Kinnell, Galway: - GALWAY KINNELL (1927-2014) was a MacArthur Fellow and state poet of Vermont. In 1982 his Selected Poems won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. For many years he was the Erich Maria Remarque Professor of Creative Writing at New York University, as well as a chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. For thirty-five years--from The Book of Nightmares to Mortal Acts and, most recently, Strong Is Your Hold--Galway Kinnell enriched American poetry, not only with his poems but also with his teaching and powerful public readings.
