About Jorie Graham

Jorie Graham is one of the most known poets of the american post-war generation. She replaced poet Seamus Heaney as Boylston Professor at Harvard, becoming the first woman to be appointed to this position. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1996 for The Dream of the Unified Field: Selected Poems 1974-1994 and was chancellor of the Academy of American Poets from 1997 to 2003. She is also a constant contributor to The New Yorker. She is widely anthologized and her poetry is the subject of many essays, including Jorie Graham: Essays on the Poetry (2005). The Poetry Foundation considers Graham's third book, The End of Beauty (1987), to have been a watershed book in which Graham first used the longer verse line for which she is best known.
