Marie Howe’s third collection of poems will be published by W. W. Norton in 2007. Howe’s first collection, The Good Thief, was selected by Margaret Atwood for the National Poetry Series, and Howe has received a Guggenheim and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Agni, Harvard Review, and New England Review, among others. Stanley Kunitz has praised her “luminous, intense, eloquent” verse, and previous reviewers have noted that, “Unlike the earlier confessional poetry of Plath, Lowell, Sexton et al., Howe’s writing is not so much a moan or a shriek as a song. It is a genuinely feminine form…a poetry of intimacy, witness, honesty, and relation” (Boston Globe). She teaches at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY.
