After reading the article I went to http://www.poets.org/poet.php/prmPID/352
where I viewed Kay's profile and read a bit of her work. It's very nice, but of course people already knew that (hence the whole "Poet Laureate" award)

I don't really have a strong opinion about her work--I've seen it in journals but do not have any of her books.

I hadn't heard of her, but that makes it exciting. We will all be familiar with her work before too long.

I've read a few of her poems here and there, as well as her commentary, probably in "Poetry."
