Faculty Book: Marilyn Hacker
Unauthorized Voices: Essays on Poets and Poetry, 1987–2009
(University of Michigan Press, 2010)
For more than twenty years, Marilyn Hacker has been writing incisive criticism and reviews of contemporary poetry, with particular attention to the work of feminist poets, poets of color, dissident poets, poets whose work she judged worthy of more attention from the American (and sometimes British) reading public. Unauthorized Voices is Hacker’s first collection of critical prose, with pieces on Adrienne Rich, Hayden Carruth, Elizabeth Bishop, Tony Harrison, Marilyn Nelson, and June Jordan; on French and Francophone poets including Vénus Khoury-Ghata and Emmanuel Moses; on poetry and politics; and on the contemporary sonnet, all affirming Hacker as an original, unabashedly opinionated American critical voice. Marilyn Hacker (Prof., City) is on the doctoral faculty in French and women’s studies.
