Rae Armantrout, celebrated Language poet and recipient of the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award for her collection, Verse (Wesleyan, 2009), is the author of more than a dozen poetry books, most recently, Conjure (Wesleyan Poetry Series, 2020). Her numerous honors also include a 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship and a 2007 Foundation for Contemporary Arts award in poetry. She has written that her "poems investigate the uneasy relations among words, the dissonance and the resonance. I hope readers will do a double-take or experience what Charles Bernstein has called 'turbulent thought.'" Born in Vallejo, CA, Armantrout earned her BA at UC Berkeley-where she studied with Denise Levertov-and earned her MA at San Francisco State. She is a professor emerita at UC San Diego, where she taught for over 20 years and directed the New Writing Series.
