David Wojahn

David Wojahn,

Winner of the 2012

Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize

David Wojahn is one of American poetry’s most thoughtful examiners of culture and memory. His poetry reflects political and social issues in American life, usually through significant popular culture events, such as the poem written about John Lennon. Wojahn’s original contemporary poetry made him the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation. Linda Gregerson said, "David Wojahn's World Tree is a book of consummate vision and artistry. Exquisitely cadenced, politically astute, large of heart, and keen of mind, these are poems of extraordinary moral penetration. They are also a joy to read: David Wojahn is working at the height of his powers." For more information on Professor Wojahn, visit his website at www.davidwojahn.net.
