Carol Muske-Duke'S
Blue Rose

Carol Muske-Dukes is known for her ability to marry emotional resonance and lyrical intensity in her poetry. In her ninth collection of poems, Blue Rose, Muske-Dukes negotiates the unattainable and the irreversible to find the beautiful, ugly truth. Several of the poems in Blue Rose reflect the lives of trailblazing women, from pioneering scientist Rosalind Franklin, to California’s first poet laureate Ina Coolbrith, to “Aunt Anna,” who saved her son’s life after he was shot in a gun accident.

Carol Muske-Dukes is the author of eight books of poems, including Sparrow, which was a finalist for the National Book Award; four novels; three collections of essays; and Crossing State Lines: An American Renga, co-edited with Bob Holman.  She was the poet laureate of California from 2008-2011.  She is Professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Southern California.
