Louise Gluck


"Louise Elisabeth Glück (pronounced "Glick") was born April 22, 1943 in New York City and grew up on Long Island.

"Glück graduated in 1961 from Hewlett High School, in Hewlett, NY. She attended Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, New York, and Columbia University, New York City. Glück won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1993 for her collection The Wild Iris. Glück is the recipient of the National Book Critics Circle Award (Triumph of Achilles), the Academy of American Poet’s Prize (Firstborn), as well as numerous Guggenheim fellowships.

"She is currently a Senior Lecturer in English at Williams College in Williamstown, MA and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts." (Artstomp.com)

Since Ms. Glück is a modern writer and currently a lecturer at a well-known institution, there is little information known about her on the internet. This is unfortunate, since an author's personal life usually influences his or her work, and would aid it's interpretation. Hopefully, in the near future, new information on Ms. Glück will be available to this site.
