Born on the same day as Shakespeare, Christopher Bursk has no illusions he is Prospero breaking his wand, though this is his final book of poetry. A recipient of PEW, NEA, and Guggenheim Fellowships and author of eighteen books, he is grateful to have had his writing recognized by The AWP Donald Hall Poetry Prize, the Allen Ginsberg Prize, the Green Rose Prize, the Patterson Prize, Bellingham Review’s 49th Parallel Awards, the New Letters Prize in Poetry, and the Milt Kessler Book Award. Most importantly, he is the proud grandfather of six.

Read about his new collection of poetry, With Aeneas in a Time of Plague.
