The Yale Review
"The Yale Review, with its distinguished history, is one of the very finest of American literary journals."
(Joyce Carol Oates)
Final judge: Lawrence Raab
"I write this at a time when many individuals with many different kinds of lives aspire to be poets, and many different kinds of poetry are said to thrive in these United States. Is it too easy to say that Lowell's star has fallen a bit? Or is it actually that the sense of achievement his work self-consciously carries with it itself carries less credibility than it used to?"
