Marya Zaturenska

Marya Zaturenska (1902–1982) was an American lyric poet, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1938. She was born in Kiev and her family emigrated to the United States when she was eight and lived in New York. Like many immigrants, she was forced to work in a factory during the day, but was able to attend high school at night. Zaturenska was an outstanding student and won a scholarship to Valparaiso University; she later transferred to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she met her husband, the prize-winning poet Horace Gregory. Her two children were Patrick and Joanna Gregory. She wrote eight volumes of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Cold Morning Sky, and she edited six anthologies of poetry.
