Pardlo’s poems are personal and poignant as well as political. He studied political science at Rutgers until he got bored with it and joined the Marines. Several years later, he returned to Rutgers to study English and “came out of the literary closet,” fully embracing his love for poetry. His book Digest won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
