About the author (1971)

Although not associated with any one school of poetry, Mark Strand's work seems to possess qualities of the European and Latin American surrealists. As Strand is a translator of Paz, Borges, Guillen, and Quasimodo, this is not surprising. His poetry, though written in a matter-of-fact style, seems singularly removed from the here and now, filled with the impossibilities of the restless world lying between dream and wakefulness. Strand also writes children's stories. This Canadian-born U.S. poet received his degree from Antioch College, attended Yale University, studied in Florence on a Fulbright grant (1960--61), and later studied at the University of Iowa. He was a Fulbright lecturer in 1965 and 1966, and during 1966--67 he held an Ingram Merrill Fellowship and taught at Mount Holyoke College. His prizes include an award from the National Council on the Arts (1967--68) and a Rockefeller Fellowship (1968--1969). In 1990 Strand was named the fourth Poet Laureate of the United States. 010
