Jane Hirshfield Selects Anna Laura Reeve as Winner of 2022 Adrienne Rich Award
Of Anna Laura Reeve's poem, Jane Hirshfield writes, "The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale” brilliantly uses its device of psychology-evaluation questionnaire and the responses' contrasting (and changing) diction to bring readers into its interior and exterior landscape with vividness, exactitude, surety, and the discoveries of language's own imaginative powers. Surface objectivity and calmness become increasingly transparent to what is described: the lived experience, feelings, thought, and condition of spirit of the mother of a premature new-born over time. From birthing room forward, this poem is entirely revelatory and harrowing."
We’re grateful to the Adrienne Rich Literary Trust and to all who submitted poems for this year’s contest.
