Born and raised in Texas, Christian Wiman is a writer of both poems and essays. Richard Wilbur, one of his mentors, has illuminatingly commented on his “singular power to bring about mergings of consciousness with the surround.” The surround can be anywhere in America and indeed the world. This poet is much travelled (he has lived in England, Mexico, Guatemala and the Czech Republic) and has served in several universities. His poetry and prose collections include The Long Home , Hard Night, Ambition and Survival, and, most recently, Every Riven Thing. He lives in Chicago, where he is the editor of Poetry magazine.
