    Eduardo C. Corral's poems have appeared in Beloit Poetry Journal,New England Review, Ploughshares, and Poetry, as well as other journals and anthologies. He received a Discovery/The Nation award and was selected for residencies at the MacDowell Colony and Yaddo. He lives in southern Arizona.

    Carl Phillips is the award-winning author of eleven books of poetry, includingSpeak Low, which was a National Book Award finalist. He teaches at Washington University in St. Louis. This is his first year as judge of the Yale Series of Younger Poets.

    Eduardo C. Corral is the 2011 recipient of the Yale Series of Younger Poets award, joining such distinguished previous winners as Adrienne Rich, W. S. Merwin, and John Ashbery. Corral is the first Latino poet to win the competition.

    Seamlessly braiding English and Spanish, Corral's poems hurtle across literary and linguistic borders toward a lyricism that slows down experience. He employs a range of forms and phrasing, bringing the vivid particulars of his experiences as a Chicano and gay man to the page. Although Corral's topics are decidedly sobering, contest judge Carl Phillips observes, "one of the more surprising possibilities offered in these poems is joy."

    From "Self-Portrait with Tumbling and Lasso"

    I'm a cowboy

    riding bareback

    My soul is

    whirling

    above my head like a lasso.

    My right hand

    a pistol. My left

    automatic. I'm knocking

    on every door.

    I'm coming on strong . . .
