From the archives
Thirty years ago, Marie Howe’s first poetry collection, selected by Margaret Atwood as a winner of the 1987 Open Competition of the National Poetry Series, was published. Ms. Howe's poems in this collection involve a deeply authentic voice, which concern relationship, attachment and loss, in a highly original search for personal transcendence.
Marie Howe received her MFA from Columbia University in 1983, and has been awarded several prestigious grants and fellowships. She was the Poet Laureate of New York State from 2012 to 2014. She currently lives in New York City.
