Cover Art: Almost Invisible by Mark Strand

Pulitzer Award-winning poet Mark Strand passed away this weekend after 80 years of life. Known to dwell on tropes of absence, death, and identity, his writings have both primed us for and will carry us through his departure. Though he has created art and criticism across several genres as a children’s book author, essayist, translator, and collage artist, he will be best remembered for his sizeable and enduring contribution to contemporary American poetry.
