Rita Ann Higgins 
Author

* 26.05.1955, Galway, Irlanda
Vive en: Galway, Irlanda

Rita Ann Higgins, born in Galway in 1955, has published numerous volumes of poetry, as well as several plays. One of 11 children, Higgins left school at 14 and first began to be interested in writing during a long stay in hospital in her 20s.

In an interview she described her decision to become a poet with a typical lack of pretension: 'You didn’t have to worry about tenses and verbs. You could write a poem without a verb, and if you didn’t know what a verb was – and I didn’t – it was ok.' Her poems, similarly ironic in tone, have been awarded numerous prizes.

Higgins has held the post of Writer-in-Residence at several Irish Universities, undertaken readings at Oxford, Queens, and Yale University - where her poems are also part of the Literature Curriculum - and at conferences in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Belgium and Israel. Her poems have been translated into Hebrew, German, Italian, Dutch, French and Swedish.
