Alice Notley

Alice Notley is a prolific writer and visual artist whose experimental works often collapse traditional boundaries between genres. Born in Bisbee, Arizona and raised in Needles, California—desert places which she evokes in her poetry—Notley became associated with The New York School of poets and painters during her marriage to the legendary Lower East Side poet Ted Berrigan; their two sons, Anselm and Edmund, are also poets.
