Anne Carson has won a MacArthur "genius" grant, a Guggenheim fellowship, the Pushcart Prize for Poetry and the T.S. Eliot Prize. Her work combines classical mythology with startling reflections on loss, monstrosity and loneliness — reinventing ancient wounds for a modern age. Her poetry collections include Autobiography of Red, Antigonick and Red Doc>. With her 2001 book, The Beauty of the Husband: A Fictional Essay in 29 Tangos, she became the first woman to receive England's T.S. Eliot Prize for Poetry. Carson also won Canada's inaugural Griffin Poetry Prize in 2001 for her collection Men in the Off Hours.
