Inger Christensen

One of my all-time favorite poets has died. I began reading her in 1993 after hearing her read with Jackson MacLow and it totally blew me away. New Directions has published three of her books. My favorite is Alphabet but I also love Det. Both Joyelle and I teach Alphabet pretty much every single class we teach (this upcoming one is no different). She was 73, so she did pretty well despite being a severe chain-smoker.
