Nobel winner 2020

It is that time of year and we have just seen this year’s winner announced. After the controversy of Handke winning the prize. The feeling was it would be a safer choice this year. The winner is Louise Glück an american poet I have seen here name mentioned she was in this betting further down so she is a surprise. I have put a bit of bio and some poems here for you and myself she seems very much a poet about family and the personal world.

Louise Glück was born in New York City in 1943 and grew up on Long Island. She attended Sarah Lawrence College and Columbia University. Considered by many to be one of America’s most talented contemporary poets, Glück is noted for her poetry’s technical precision, sensitivity, and insight into loneliness, family relationships, divorce, and death, as well as what poet Rosanna Warren has called its “classicizing gestures” or frequent reworking of Greek and Roman myths such as Persephone and Demeter. from poetry foundation
