Ellen Bass Selects Jude Nutter as Winner of 2020 Adrienne Rich Award
Of Jude Nutter’s poem, Ellen Bass writes, “‘Visible Woman, Visible Man’ is a capacious, complex poem. Building on striking diction, fresh metaphors, and precise narration, the poet considers the human body and the whole of the physical world, reaching back and forward in time—an ambitious journey which she carries off with aplomb. Intellectually satisfying and emotionally moving, this is a poem which deepens with each successive reading.”
We’re grateful to the Adrienne Rich Literary Trust and to all who submitted poems for this year’s contest.
