Nancy Krygowski

Publication Year: 2007

Winner of the 2006 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize Krygowski's poems--often sad, sometimes humorous, always generous--are lovingly grounded in the ordinary. They are thinking poems--tightly crafted, accessible inquiries more interested in exploring stark and complicated knowledge than in proclaiming it.
