Rae Armantrout Poster

Rae Armantrout is a native Californian whose poems are masterful contradictions; according to Robert Creeley, her poems have “a quiet and enabling signature.” He adds, “I don’t think there’s another poet writing who is so consummate in authority and yet so generous to her readers and company alike.” Her poems are telegenically “regional,” filled with bungalows, newscasters and swimming pools yet they ring with an immaterial clarity that quietly subsumes her readers and listeners in a radical and eerily funny vision.
