Poetry. BLOODROOT, Catherine Jagoe's first full length collection of poems, is the winner of the 2016 Settlement House American Poetry Prize. The prize is awarded annually to a book of poems by a first-generation American poet. The book is a passport to lands and cultures from England, Africa, Spain and the US. In language as lyrical and rich as that of anyone writing in English today, BLOODROOT celebrates humanity and answers the question of what it means to be a poet of the world.
