Gregerson has written three volumes -- her most recent
is the acclaimed Waterborne (2002), which recently
earned her the $100,000 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Prize, and she teaches
Renaissance literature and creative writing at the University
of Michigan, Ann Arbor. According to Professor Gladys
Cardiff, her poetry is marked by "intelligence" and "a
rich lyrical voice, that is by temperament opposed to
sentimentality and easy consolations."
