Congratulations to Louise Glück for winning the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature! FSG is proud to publish her and her amazing work.
Louise Gluck is one of the rare contemporary poets whose work has the power to speak directly to others through her great and subtle art. As the Nobel Committee said, her poetry's "austere beauty makes individual experience universal." This is very accurate. It's wonderful to have her astringent, witty, profoundly human voice, a voice that so richly reflects our own inner feelings and reactions, so broadly recognized. I'm sure the prize will bring her many, many new readers.
