Louise Glück

Photo of poet Louise Glück from her page at the Library of Congress, where she served as poet laureate in 2003

Glück, currently on leave from Yale University (c.v.), will received the 2008 Wallace Stevens Award from the Academy of American Poets.

Here's her page at the American Academy of Poets, as well as her page at the Modern American Poetry website compiled by the English Department at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. And here's poet Mary Karr's appreciation from earlier this year in the Washington Post.
