Her three previous books were Salt Air, Objects of Affection, and Flying Blind. She also edited Where We Stand: Women Poets on Literary Tradition, and co-edited, with William Olsen, Planet on the Table: Poets on the Reading Life. Her awards include two NEA fellowships in poetry, a senior fellowship at the Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, and a residency at The Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire. She has taught as a visiting poet at universities around the country, and is currently on the faculty of the Lesley University low-residency MFA Program in Cambridge.

MARY BAINE CAMPBELL is the author of two poetry collections, The World, the Flesh, and Angels, winner of the Barnard New Woman Poets Prize, and Trouble, as well as the chapbook Are Sin, Disease and Death Real?, and an opera libretto for Martin Brody’s Bisclavret. She was for several years Director of Creative Writing at Brandeis, as well as Fannie Hurst Visiting Writer at Washington University. Her work has been set to music in the US, Canada and the Czech Republic, and translated into French and Russian.
