Cole Swensen

Cole Swensen is the author of 17 volumes of poetry, most recently Landscapes on a Train (Nightboat, 2015) and On Walking On (Nightboat, 2017). Most of her books are based on research projects, often exploring issues of land-from gardens and parks, involving questions of public vs private space, to land as it has been mediated into landscape through painting, photography, and film. She has won the SF State Poetry Center Book Award, the Iowa Poetry Prize, and a National Poetry Series, and has been a finalist for the National Book Award. She also has a collection of critical essays, Noise That Stays Noise (U. of Michigan, 2011) on poetics and on translation, and she co-edited the 2009 Norton anthology American Hybrid. She is on the faculty of the Literary Arts Department at Brown University.
