Combining form and feeling, human nature and animal instinct, a scientist's eye and a poet's heart, Meredith Carson creates poetry of detail and delight. Her Infinite Morning was chosen from nearly 650 manuscripts as the first winner of the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize. Carson uses her scientific background and the experience of working with her biologist husband in the field to give her poetry clarity and rigor. Her vision continually compels the reader to look more closely for the rewards and treasures of nature that she herself has found. Steeped in science's ongoing inquiry into reality, Carson engenders a mindset that makes the reader receptive to the realities of the natural world.
Meredith Carson was born in Brooklyn in 1913. She studied poetry with Horace Gregory and mythology and literature with Joseph Campbell. She studied invertebrate zoology at Woods Hole Biological Laboratories in 1936. Since 1971, she has resided in Honolulu.
