  • Benjamin Ivry


The poet, translator, essayist, and editor Richard Howard has been an indispensable presence in American letters for many decades. A Pulitzer Prize winner for his third poetry collection, Untitled Subjects (1969), Howard has also contributed to the literature of his time by publishing the work of others in both magazine and book form. He has most recently served as poetry editor for the Paris Review and Western Humanities Review, having formerly been poetry editor for Shenandoah, the New American Review, and the New Republic. He is director of the Lockert Library of Translation for Princeton University Press and has directed and introduced the Braziller Poetry Series (eighteen volumes) and the James Dickey Poetry Series for the University of South Carolina (sixteen volumes). He has also been a uniquely perceptive commentator on poetry.
