Mary Crow

David Ignatow writes that Mary Crow gives "...us a poet of miraculous lucidity and mystery at once" in her translations of Argentinean poet, Roberto Juarroz's poems, Vertical Poetry: Recent Poems. In addition to Juarroz's work, Ms. Crow has translated two other books of poems: From the Country of Nevermore: Poems by Jorge Teillier, and Woman Who Has Sprouted Wings: Poems by Contemporary Latin American Poets. Her own poems can be found in her books, Borders, Business of Literature and Going Home. She has published her work in over 115 magazines and translations in 70 magazines. Ms. Crow has received Fulbright Research Awards to Argentina, Venezuela, Yugoslavia, Chile and Peru. When she isn't traveling, she teaches poetry at Colorado State University. Her book, I Have Tasted the Apple, is forthcoming during April of 1996. [extracted from 1995 brochure]
