Louise Gluck

She is the 16th woman to win the Nobel Prize in Literature 

American poet and essayist Louise Glück wins the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature "for her unmistakable poetic voice that with austere beauty makes individual existence universal." She is widely known as one of the purest and most accomplished contemporary lyric poets and is often called an autobiographical poet.

Louise Glück was born in 1943 in New York. She made her debut in 1968 with the collection, Firstborn, and was soon acclaimed as one of the most prominent poets in American contemporary literature.

She has published twelve collections of poetry and a few volumes of essays on poetry. In 1993 she won a Pulitzer Prize for The Wild Iris (1992). Her most recent books of poetry include the National Book Award winning Faithful and Virtuous Night (2014), and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize winning Poems 1962-2012 (2012). 

She is currently writer-in-residence at Yale University.
