Thought for the Day

How in deep sleep sometimes even we get well.
~ Franz Wright

Quoted from Franz Wright's poem "April Orchard"

Wright and his father James Wright (1927-19800), also a poet, are notable as the only parent-and-child pair to have won the Pulitzer Prize in the same category. Franz Wright was awarded his Pulitzer in 2004 for Walking to Martha's Vineyard (Knopf); his collection The Beforelife (Knopf, 2002; Reprint, 2005) was a finalist in 2002. James Wright received his Pulitzer in 1972 for his Collected Poems (Wesleyan University Press, 1972; Revised, 2007).

Franz Wright, 1953-2015
