MacArthur poets

After learning yesterday that Heather McHugh is one of the 2009 recipients of a MacArthur Fellowship (better known as MacArthur Genius Award/Grant), I got curious as to how many poets (and which poets) had previously been named fellows.

The answers?

40 poets, including McHugh, have received MacArthur Fellowships since the MacArthur Foundation began offering them in 1981.

Here they are, from least recent to most recent recipient:

A.R. Ammons
Joseph Brodsky
Derek Walcott
Robert Penn Warren
Brad Leithauser
A.K. Ramanujan
Robert Hass
Charles Simic
Galway Kinnell
John Ashbery
