W.S. Merwin Wins the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry



This afternoon it was announced that W.S. Merwin won the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry for The Shadow of Sirius (Copper Canyon Press, 2008). I like to think that I keep up with what is going on in the poetry world and that I buy a lot of books, but, in the interests of rigorous honesty, must confess that not only do I not have a copy of Merwin's book, I did not even know that it had been published.

Sad, but true.

Honesty never goes out of style!

For a book by a senior poet, it really didn't get much press. Weirdly.
