Ellen Bass:  A Life of Poetry

Ellen Bass is the author of four poetry collections, including Indigo (2020) by Copper Canyon Press. Her poems have appeared in hundreds of publications. She writes with humor and compassion because “we are all so terribly imperfect — starting with myself. And that willingness to feel, even a little, what someone else is feeling is what joins us most intimately to others.” The NYT’s wrote, “Bass’s work…cultivates an exuberance that’s born of, and balanced by, close watchfulness.”
