Pick-a-Poem: Ann Lauinger


Welcome, blog readers, to another installment of Pick-a-Poem! Each week we feature a new poet and their work here on the blog. We find these new poems through Poetry Daily, which is a great site to check out if you want a daily dose of poetry. This week we feature Girl Reading the Aeneid on the Subway by Ann Lauinger.

According to her page on Poetry Daily, Ann Lauinger has written two books of poetry, Persuasions of Fall (2004) — winner of the Agha Shahid Ali Prize — and Against Butterflies (2013). Her work has recently appeared in Common Ground Review, Spillway, and the anthology A Slant of Light: Contemporary Women Writers of the Hudson Valley. She is a member of the literature faculty at Sarah Lawrence College.
