THE ANTI-GRIEF by Marianne Boruch

Marianne Boruch’s The Anti-Grief has been named one of Publishers Weekly’s most anticipated poetry collections of fall 2019.

Published by Copper Canyon Press, The Anti-Grief blurs the lines between the natural and supernatural while picking up the pieces grief leaves behind. The Washington Post remarked, “[Boruch] sees and considers with intensity. Her poems give fresh examples of how rare and thrilling it can be to notice.”

Boruch’s poems “At the Same Time” and “The Park in November” appeared in the Summer 2005 issue.

Marianne Boruch has taught at Tunghai University in Taiwan, The University of Maine at Farmington, and Purdue University. She currently teaches at the low-residency program for writers at Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. She has authored ten books of poetry, as well as three essay collections and a memoir. For those works, she has received the Kingsley-Tufts Award, four Pushcart Prizes, and fellowships and residencies from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Education Association, the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center, and two Fulbright Professorships.
