Juliana Spahr is a poet and scholar of 20th century literature. Her poetry moves between lyricism, explanatory prose, and theoretical discussion. Her most recent book, That Winter the Wolf Came, concerns global struggle, especially for those located at the intersection of ecological and economic catastrophe. Previous to this, she has published four full-length collections of poems and two books of prose that might be memoirs. Spahr’s scholarly work is about literature’s complicated role in political movements.
