W.D. Snodgrass

W.D. Snodgrass's poems, essays, and translations of songs and poems have received worldwide recognition. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his first collection of poems, Heart's Needle, in 1960. A second collection of poems, After Experience, appeared in 1968, and was followed in 1975 by a collection of essays, In Radical Pursuit. The powerful series of dramatic monologues from the last days in Hitler's bunker, The Fuehrer Bunker, was published by BOA Editions in 1977, and a stage version of that series premiered at Old Dominion University and then, in a revised version, moved to the American Place Theater in New York in May of 1981. Since then, Mr. Snodgrass has published over 15 books, chapbooks, and fine edition books of poems and song translations, including Selected Poems 1957-1987, W.D.'s Midnight Carnival, and The Death of Cock Robin, the last two of which were collaborative works with the painter DeLoss McGraw.
