Tracy K. Smith + Tina Chang

Critics' pick
Tracy K. Smith
Smith won the Pulitzer this year for her collection Life on Mars, whose verses guide readers through space and time, contemplating scientific principles while making note of pop-culture touchstones like David Bowie. Tina Chang, Brooklyn's poet laureate, writes lyrically dreamy but altogether-accessible poems in titles such as 2011's Of Gods & Strangers.
