Pulitzer Prize winning poet Natasha Trethewey writes "hauntingly beautiful" poetry about tragedy, memory, loss, recovery and home. Her three collections—Domestic Work, Bellocq's Ophelia, and Native Guard—have captivated readers with a powerful presence that resonates on the page. Her book Beyond Katrina: A Meditation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast (2010) traces the recovery of her childhood hometown after the devastating natural disaster. Together, all of her work creates a monument for histories that are threatened with being either erased or ignored. This monument is well-supported within her corpus and its many acclamations: Trethewey is the winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, as well as the two time recipient of the Lillian Smith Award for Poetry, and of many fellowships including those from the National Endowment for Arts, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, the John Simon Guggenhiem Memorial Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation.
