Poetry. Charles North's poetry has received numerous honors, including two NEA grants and four Fund for Poetry Awards. In his new collection CANDENZA, he displays all the qualities that made the Washington Post call him "one of the most memorable contemporary poeets. "In CANDENZA, he moves in, around, and about everyday life with an improvisatory elan that soon becomes an almost familiar tune, sung to the friend you become every time you lend an ear. The direction is true North; the vintage just right"—Charles Bernstein.
Charles North has published eleven books of poems, three books of critical prose, and collaborations with artists and other poets. With James Schuyler, he edited the poet/painter anthologies Broadway and BROADWAY 2 (Hanging Loose Press, 1989). His WHAT IT IS LIKE: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS (Hanging Loose Press, 2011) headed NPR's Best Poetry Books of 2011, and he has received a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant, two NEA grants, four Fund for Poetry Awards, and a Poets Foundation Award. He lives with his wife, the painter Paula North, in New York City.
