Her many honors include a National Endowment for the Arts grant, a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, and the New York State Poet Laureateship from 1998–2000. Often compared to “confessional” poets, Olds has been much praised for the courage, emotional power, and extraordinary honesty with which she addresses domestic and political violence, sexuality, family relationships, love, and the body.
