NY State Poet Laureate (2012-2014)      “Marie Howe's poetry is luminous, intense, and eloquent, rooted in an abundant  inner life. Her long, deep-breathing lines address the mysteries of flesh and spirit, in  terms accessible only to a woman who is very much of our time and yet still in touch  with the sacred.” —Stanley Kunitz
