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.
