Anne Stevenson, born in England and educated in Ann Arbor, won a Hopwood Award for Poetry in 1954, the year she graduated from the University of Michigan. Since then, she has mainly lived in the UK, publishing eight collection of poems before bringing out Poems 1955–2005, plus three recent collections. Although known internationally as a British poet, Stevenson was awarded the Poetry Society of America’s Neglected Master's Award in 2007, and in the same year, the Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award, and the Aiken-Taylor Award from the University of the South. In 2008, her Selected Poems was published by the Library of America. The University of Michigan conferred an Honorary Doctorate of Letters on Stevenson in 2009.
