Concord Monitor Article

April 18, 2013

Another lovely article by the Concord Monitor, by Mike Pride on Sharon Olds’ newest collection of poetry Stag’s Leap, which just won the Pulitzer Prize in poetry.

“In the 92-year history of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, Olds is the eighth poet with strong New Hampshire ties to win it. Robert Frost, who began writing poetry in Derry, won four Pulitzers, including the 1924 prize for a collection titled New Hampshire. Charles Simic of Strafford (1990), Maxine Kumin of Warner (1973) and Richard Eberhart (1966), Dartmouth College’s poet-in-residence for 30 years, also won Pulitzers.”
