UCR Emeritus Professor and U.S. Poet Laureate Juan Felipe Herrera selected Allison Adelle Hedge Coke as the 2016 Library of Congress Witter Bynner Fellow. In his selection, Herrera said he sought to honor Hedge Coke “for her precision of Earth, of suffering in and out of the Rez, of the workers unnamed, open roads knitted with tin shacks, Case ’45 tractors, ancestor dust and the spirit tuned to caribou, America and song. For her translation projects of First Peoples across the entire hemisphere. For her unceasing teaching, humility, courage, and pioneering—for these offerings to the small miracles of all our voices and the galaxies they aim to call out and admire.” Burn is a lyric testament to that legacy.
