American poet Louise Glück wins 2020 Nobel Prize for Literature


Nobel Prize winner Louise Glück has released a dozen collections of poetry

Today, we have a good reason to talk about poetry. Louise Glück (pronounced Glick) has won the 2020 Nobel prize for literature. She is the first American woman to win since Toni Morrison in 1993. The 77-year-old writer has already won a Pulitzer, a National Book Award and numerous other prizes.

Her writing often covers children and families, and new interpretations of classical myths. Glück was America’s poet laureate from 2003 to 2004, and she is currently an adjunct professor and writer in residence at Yale University.
