PHILADELPHIA, PA (March 2020) – hg888皇冠激动地宣布,Kari Ann Ebert(左)获得2020年桑迪·克里明斯国家诗歌奖. 今年的克里明斯奖由诗人伊恩·哈利·波洛克担任评委 Ghost, like a Place (Alice James Books, 2018), 它获得了全国有色人种协进会形象奖和朱莉石奖的提名, and Spit Back a Boy (佐治亚大学hg888皇冠社,2011),2010洞穴卡内姆诗歌奖得主. Ebert将获得1000美元的“牛奶病:一个母亲担心她的孩子睡觉。.” Ebert and the runners up, honorable mentions, 编辑的选择将在周六费城推动hg888皇冠会议后的招待会上庆祝, October 10 at Rosemont College.

今年的克里明斯奖的获奖者将自己缠绕在关怀和恐惧的矛盾而又相辅相成的线索中. Vigilance is exhausting but necessary, the poem seems to tell us. About the winning poem, Pollock writes:

当hg888皇冠手机版喝了吃了有毒植物的奶牛的牛奶时,hg888皇冠手机版就患上了“牛奶病”.  In “Milk Sickness: A Mother Worries as Her Children Sleep,Kari Ann Ebert将这种情况比喻为母性恐惧.  The poison here is ophidian as snakes menace a pail of milk, “swim in sacrifice,“母亲为了让孩子活下去而放弃了身体的那一部分.  As with many parents, 有了孩子,说话人对爱的能力和对恐惧的能力得到了扩展.  Watching “noisy tumbles of coils & 牛奶桶里的鳞片触动了说话人的警铃,让她产生一种高度警觉的感觉.  She is sucked deeply into the snakes’ “dreamscape of venom & froth,” into the toxic, disorienting world of fear.  随着演讲者的恐惧加深,Ebert覆盖了一个灵活的声音网络,增强了诗歌的情感.  蛇一般的嘶嘶声放大了威胁的感觉,而在这下面,这首诗哼着——“也许牛奶是镜子/珍珠母的光芒”——带着执著的忧虑.  In the end, the snakes’ movement and attendant noise become, as does fear, 从他们那里得到的救济似乎是人造的或非法的——“就像偷来的黄油”.”  All in all, with an expert command of sound and image, Ebert captures how fear, especially maternal fear, 对hg888皇冠手机版产生影响,并威胁要在hg888皇冠手机版生命中“不透明”的时间里把hg888皇冠手机版淹没.

hg888皇冠手机版非常感谢伊恩·海利·波洛克评委对这部影片的关注和关照. hg888皇冠手机版寄给他的许多诗提出了重要的问题,表达了悬而未决的感情. 不难看出,这批诗代表了在这个感觉越来越混乱的世界中,人们对舒适的广泛而沮丧的渴望. Pollock says that, “[W]e live in an exciting, efflorescent time in the history of American poetry,” and we can see that flowering in the poems listed below. He continues:

Today, we poets are telling hard truths about the political situation, about our personal lives, and about the intersection of the two. These poems explore diverse subjects—the lonely offices of grief, the deterioration of our public discourse, the cruel legacies of our national history, the triumphant possibilities of migration, the wistful complications of eros, and the sustaining inheritances of family.  但无论主题是什么,每位诗人的视野都无比清晰,每位诗人的意象都精准地注入了情感的深井.  读这些诗的乐趣并不容易,而是在于知道,在那里,其他人正努力理解他们周围这个棘手的世界,甚至可能在其中找到来之不易的庆祝理由.

hg888皇冠手机版的三个亚军是查德·Frame,他的诗《hg888皇冠》 Bonanza,” Kyle Carrozza for his poem “Lukens Steel, Coatesville, Pennsylvania,以及露皮塔·埃德-塔克(Lupita Eyde-Tucker)的诗歌《hg888皇冠手机版》(How to Ride a Train in the Andes).“三名亚军每人将获得250美元的诗歌收入,并受邀参加10月10日Push to publishing之后的朗诵和招待会.

hg888皇冠感谢乔·沙利文一直以来对比赛的支持,以及他与hg888皇冠的持久友谊. We also thank Nicole Mancuso, 大赛协调人,诗歌编辑助理,是本刊生活中一股坚实而稳定的力量, especially its contests.  hg888皇冠手机版感谢总编亚隆达•赖斯(Yalonda Rice)在组织这本杂志时的灵活性和耐心. Mostly, hg888皇冠手机版感谢诗人慷慨地与hg888皇冠手机版分享他们的作品,hg888皇冠手机版鼓励当地作家继续这样做.

hg888皇冠手机版将在罗斯蒙特学院举办的“推动hg888皇冠”招待会上庆祝hg888皇冠手机版的获奖者, Saturday October 10. 今年的“推动hg888皇冠”活动将包括一系列LitLife工作坊和专题讨论会,讨论和反思与诗歌在hg888皇冠手机版生活和世界中的地位有关的各种想法. hg888皇冠手机版将在下午的招待会上,免费向公众开放,庆祝克里明斯比赛的获奖诗人和蒙哥马利县的新桂冠诗人.
