This information is accurate as of the fellowship year indicated for each fellow.

Henri Cole is the author of eight collections of poetry, most recently Touch (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011). He teaches at the Ohio State University and is the poetry editor of the New Republic.

While at Radcliffe, Cole plans to continue working on a ninth collection of poetry, exploring autobiography and memory, and also a nonfiction book about Paris, tentatively titled “Orphic Paris,” a hybrid work that blends autobiography, art, and history, with digressions about poetry.

Cole has received many awards for his work, including the Berlin Prize, the Jackson Poetry Prize, the Kingsley Tufts Award, the Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize, and the Rome Prize. In 2004, his collection Middle Earth (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2003) was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize.
