Natalie Kenvin

Natalie Kenvin is the author of Bruise Theory (BOA, 1995). Shestudied with Donald Hall, W. D. Snodgrass, Lucille Clifton and Charles Simic, and returned to writing in 1988 after a twenty-five-year silence. Many of her poems are set in urban neighborhoods and state hospitals, making Kenvin, like Sylvia Plath, a poet of dark moods and slashing epiphanies. "To know her/ Is like kissing in the narrow, warring alleys." From 1993-1995, Kenvin was co-editor of No Roses Review and has won an NEA Award (1995) and an Illinois Artist in the Schools Award (1998-2000).
