Sharon Olds was just announced as the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for her collection Stag’s Leap.
I’ll be honest. I don’t like her very much these days. I read several of her collections and found them… a bit much. The transgressiveness and focus on the bodily eventually felt repetitive to me. But still, she’s a prominent and well respected poet and this prize will give her a platform to talk about poetry to the reading world at large, one hopes.
