Random Name Poetry Series presents: RAE ARMANTROUT's most recent books are ITSELF(Wesleyan, 2015) and JUST SAYING (Wesleyan, 2013). In 2010 her book VERSED, also from Wesleyan, won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Writing in LANA TURNER, Aaron Kunin has described Armatrout's poetry this way: "Not ecstatic or epiphanic, but something more like what Archimedes meant when he shouted, Eureka! The feeling of having an idea. Arriving at a solution and seeing behind it a prospect of all the new intellectual problems disclosed by the solution.” She lives in San Diego where she is professor emeritus at UC San Diego. http://www.upne.com/0819574671.html A former NEA Fellow, BRIAN TEARE is the recipient of poetry fellowships from the MacDowell Colony, The Headlands Center for the Arts, and the American Antiquarian Society.
