The Keough-Naughton Institute is pleased to announce that John Wilkinson is its first Writer in Residence. A highly accomplished, experimental poet, Wilkinson's densely complex work fuses new ideas in philosophy, psychology, sociology and the arts to make cutting-edge poetry that challenges readers with its unusual forms and disturbing intensities. He has published six major collections of verse as well as critical articles on British and American poetry. His most recent collections are Contrivances (2003) and Effigies against the Light (2001); a chapbook titled Iphigenia appeared in 2004, and his 1986 collection, Proud Flesh, was re-issued in 2005 with an introduction by Drew Milne. John Wilkinson has won The Chancellor's Medal for an English Poem at Cambridge University, held a Frank Knox Fellowship at Harvard University, and was a Fulbright Distinguished Scholar in 2003/04 at the Nathan S. Kline Institute.
