Praise for Plunder

Winner of the 2019 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize

"You will love Dorsey Craft’s rollicking persona, the Pirate Anne Bonny, who, in this thrilling book of poems, serves up heaps of scintillant treasures from the bottomless trunk of her imagination, wit, and verve. In Plunder, Jack Sparrow has met his match."

—Deb Gorlin, judge, 2019 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize

PRAISE FOR THE PIRATE ANNE BONNY DANCES THE TARANTELLA:

In her dazzling collection, The Pirate Anne Bonny Dances the Tarantella, Dorsey Craft wields with masterful control, an urgent and textured syntax that turn by turn, spins images of kaleidoscopic genius.
