Oberlin Alum Wins Pulitzer Prize

Vijay Seshadri ’74 has been awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for 3 Sections. The Pulitzer citation describes 3 Sections as “a compelling collection of poems that examine human consciousness, from birth to dementia, in a voice that is by turns witty and grave, compassionate and remorseless.”
