Gary Snyder Wins $100,000 Wallace Stevens Award

Poet Gary Snyder has won $100,000 Wallace Stevens Award from The Academy of American Poets. Snyder was picked by the Academy of American Poets’ Board of Chancellors.

“Gary Snyder has brought to American poetry a lyric poem whose subjects and views are objectively epic,” explained Jane Hirshfield, chancellor of The Academy of American Poets, in a statement. “His words look into the world and our human lives with acuity, affection, and the ethics of a ten-thousand-year perception. They have altered and marked both how we know and how we say.”

Brenda Hillman won the Academy of American Poets Fellowship, which includes a $25,000 award. David Wojahn won the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize for his work World Tree, which also includes a $25,000 award. Catherine Barnett won the James Laughlin Award for her work The Game of Boxes which fetched her $5,000 in prize money.
