Pullitzer Prize http://nhpr.org en Pulitzer Prize Winning Poet, Sharon Olds http://nhpr.org/post/pulitzer-prize-winning-poet-sharon-olds <p>Throughout her career the poet <strong>Sharon Olds</strong> has been asked if her poems were true or autobiographical. There are poems about mothering and domesticity and eroticism filled with personal details and described with remarkable directness and insight. <strong>Sharon Olds</strong> has rejected the auto-biographical characterization and resisted talking about her life while her children were young, and her parents were alive. She even kept the disillusion of her 32 year marriage from the public; waiting more than a decade to publish <a href="http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780307959904" target="_blank"><em>Stag's Leap</em></a>, a collection of poems that is being praised as the best book of her career, and earlier this month won the <a href="http://www.pw.org/content/adam_johnson_sharon_olds_win_pulitzer_prizes?cmnt_all=1" target="_blank">Pullitzer Prize</a> for poetry.</p><p> Tue, 30 Apr 2013 18:15:22 +0000 Virginia Prescott 26583 at http://nhpr.org Pulitzer Prize Winning Poet, Sharon Olds
