For 2002 The New Criterion Poetry Prize has been awarded to Adam Kirsch. "His melodious verse renders the joys and sorrows of romantic love and the agonizing dialectics of American political history. Mr. Kirsch has already written poems that will endure, and he bids fair to join the ranks of his masters." Daniel Mark Epstein."
