2015 Pulitzer Prizes - Poetry


For a distinguished volume of original verse by an American author, Ten thousand dollars ($10,000).

Awarded to "Digest," by Gregory Pardlo (Four Way Books), clear-voiced poems that bring readers the news from 21st Century America, rich with thought, ideas and histories public and private.

Also nominated as finalists in this category were: "Reel to Reel," by Alan Shapiro(University of Chicago Press), finely crafted poems with a composure that cannot conceal the troubled terrain they traverse; and "Compass Rose," by Arthur Sze (Copper Canyon Press), a collection in which the poet uses capacious intelligence and lyrical power to offer a dazzling picture of our inter-connected world.


Yay, Greg Pardlo! Outstanding!
