This year’s Noble Prize in Literature has been awarded to Louise Glück, the great American poet, “for her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal.” I have read a few of her collections, including The Wild Iris, Vita Nova, and her most recent Faithful and Virtuous Night. I think she’s tremendous and have enjoyed wrestling with her work — I wish I understood it better and look forward to wrestling with more of it!
