Jennifer Michael Hecht
The Next Ancient World won the Tupelo Press Judge’s Prize in 2001 and has since won the Poetry Society of America’s Norma Farber First Book Award and the ForeWord Magazine Best Poetry Book of the Year (2001).
Jennifer Michael Hecht writes delightfully tricky poems that wildly bend the sense of our language as they swerve back and forth between the realms of the colloquial and the absurd. The result of these maneuvers isThe Next Ancient World — a deconstructed soap-opera, a one-hundred-ring verbal circus, a gang of brazen, ingenious poems.”
—Billy Collins, U.S. Poet Laureate
