About Seth AbramsonSeth Abramson is an american poet. Abramson has published a number of books and anthologies. The magazine Publishers Weekly describes Abramson as serious and ambitious...uncommonly interested in general statements, in hard questions, and harder answers, about how to live. Abramson won the 2008 J. Howard and Barbara M.J. Wood Prize. Poetry editor Don Share said of Abramson's What I Have that the poem absorbs certain details but doesn't fasten upon them the way poets are tempted to do; it's not adjectival, it's not descriptive, it's not painting a kind of canvas with scenery on it, and yet those details are really fascinating.
