2015 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry

— From Pultizer Prize Winners

I was so lucky to hear Gregory Pardlo read from this Pulitzer Prize-winning book on a rainy May evening in Brooklyn. It's incredibly smart while remaining approachable, and so moving. Pair with "Citizen" by Claudia Rankine and Ta-Nehisi Coates' "Between the World and Me". --Leigh

Description


Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry (2015)

From Epicurus to Sam Cooke, the Daily News to Roots, Digest draws from the present and the past to form an intellectual, American identity. In poems that forge their own styles and strategies, we experience dialogues between the written word and other art forms. Within this dialogue we hear Ben Jonson, we meet police K-9s, and we find children negotiating a sense of the world through a father's eyes and through their own.
