60. Pulitzerpreis für Rae Armantrout

Der Pulitzerpreis für Lyrik geht in diesem Jahr an Rae Armantrout.

For a distinguished volume of original verse by an American author, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

Awarded to “Versed,” by Rae Armantrout(Wesleyan University Press), a book striking for its wit and linguistic inventiveness, offering poems that are often little thought-bombs detonating in the mind long after the first reading.

Finalists

Also nominated as finalists in this category were “Tryst,” by Angie Estes (Oberlin College Press), a collection of poems remarkable for its variety of subjects, array of genres and nimble use of language; and “Inseminating the Elephant,” by Lucia Perillo (Copper Canyon Press), a collection of poems, often laced with humor, that examine popular culture, the limits of the human body and the tragicomic aspects of everyday experience.
