The Invented Child
by Margaret Mackinnon
Award Winner: 2011

Margaret Mackinnon is a compelling voice in American poetry. Her début collection, The Invented Child, is beautifully poised between reticence and candor. Frequently inspired by visual art, she writes lovingly of her parents, her husband, her child, but also of Sophia Hawthorne and Walt Whitman and Grant Wood, reminding us of the “sweet amplitude” of life. These are splendid poems of feeling that look far beyond the self to the miraculous other. Brava!  -- Kelly Cherry
