Ring in the New Year in style with The Southern Review's jewel-studded winter 2012 issue. Featured poets include Charles Simic, Mary Ruefle, Stephen Dunn, Bob Hicok, Wendy Barker, Elana Bell, Daniel Johnson, and Anna Journey. A snow-dusted Copenhagen at Christmas is the site of Thomas E. Kennedy's surprising and movingly human account of what it means to face death and emerge grateful to the world. Jason Brown brings us "Wintering Over," a chilling story about an artist couple isolated in a neglected Maine house over a winter that may be prove too long for them to endure. New fiction by Stuart Dybek, Christie Hodgen, Christine Sneed, Ted Sanders, and Reese Okyong Kwon joins nonfiction by Rachel Ida Buff and paintings by Gwyneth Scally.

關於作者 (2012)

Charles Simic was born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, in 1938, immigrated with his family to Chicago in 1954, and was educated at New York University, where he earned his BA in 1966. Although his native language was Serbian, he began writing in English. Some of his work reflects the years he served in the U.S. Army (1961--63). He has been awarded a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, a Guggenheim Foundation grant, and a National Endowment for the Arts award. "My poetry always had surrealistic tendencies, which were discouraged a great deal in the '50's," the poet said, but such tendencies were applauded in the 1970s and his reputation consequently flourished. His poems are about obsessive fears and often depict a world that resembles the animism of primitive thought. His work has affinities with that of Mark Strand and has in its turn produced several imitators. His awards and honors included the PEN Translation Prize (1980), in 1990, he won a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for "The World Doesn't End.", the Wallace Stevens Award 2007, Frost Medal (2011), Vilcek Prize in Literature (2011), and the Zbigniew Herbert International Literary Award (2014). He was appointed the fifteenth Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress in 2007. Charles Simic died on January 10, 2023, at the age of 84.
