Harryette Mullen wins $50,000 Jackson Poetry Prize
In their announcement of the award, the judges wrote that Mullen's work is
"brilliant and enigmatic,
familiar and subversive.
her poems are multifaceted and
shoot off lights.
Mullen uses the techniques of sound association, innuendo, and signifying, and this way makes the reader alert to the cunning of the English language."
