Alicia Ostriker is a major American poet and critic. Twice nominated for a National Book Award, she is author of nine volumes of poetry, most recently The Little Space: Poems Selected and New, 1968-1998. As a critic Ostriker is the author of two pathbreaking volumes on women's poetry, Writing Like a Woman and Stealing the Language: The Emergence of Women's Poetry in America. She has also published two books on the Bible, Feminist Revision and the Bible and the controversial The Nakedness of the Fathers; Biblical Visions and Revisions, a combination of prose and poetry that re-imagines the Bible from the perspective of a contemporary Jewish woman. Her most recent book is Dancing at the Devil's Party: Essays on Poetry, Politics and the Erotic.

Ostriker has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Poetry Society of America, the San Francisco State Poetry Center, the Judah Magnes Museum, the New Jersey Arts Council, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Guggenheim Foundation.
