Serbian-American poet Charles Simic, 2007-08 Poet Laureate of the United States, has won a Pulitzer Prize, a MacArthur Fellowship, and the Wallace Stevens Award. He is poetry editor of the Paris Review and a frequent contributor to the New York Review of Books. In addition to 18 books of poetry, he has published novels and essays and translated the works of poets from the former Yugoslavia. “The range of Charles Simic’s imagination is evident in his stunning and unusual imagery,” said James Billington, Librarian of Congress. “He handles language with the skill of a master craftsman, yet his poems are easily accessible, often meditative and surprising.”
