List of winners of the Wallace Stevens Award. Named for Wallace Stevens, the award was established in 1994 by the Academy of American Poets, to "recognize outstanding and proven mastery in the art of poetry", and grant $100,000.[1][2][3] Receipt of the prize has been among the distinctions noted by the Library of Congress when the Poet Laureate of the United States is named.[4][5]

"It's a very sweet award, there's no doubt about that," Strand said. "It's so meaningful to know that you're thought well enough of by your peers that they think you deserve something like this."[6]
