Anne Stevenson

Anne Stevenson (born 1933) is an American-British poet and writer.

Stevenson was born to American parents in Cambridge, England, but was raised in the United States and was educated in Ann Arbor, University of Michigan, where her father, C.L. Stevenson, was a professor of philosophy. After obtaining her bachelor's and master's degrees and graduating with honours, she returned to the UK where she has lived most of her life. She has been married four times.

She is the author of over a dozen volumes of poetry, of some books of essays and literary criticism, of a controversial biography of the American poet Sylvia Plath, "Bitter Fame: A Life of Sylvia Plath" (1989), and of two critical studies of Elizabeth Bishop.

Stevenson was the inaugural winner of the Northern Rock Foundation Writer's Award in 2002. In 2007, she received the Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award
