Timeline of Maurice Manning


Manning appeared in KET’s 2018 documentary, Robert Penn Warren: A Vision. Of Warren, he said “Robert Penn Warren had a vision. Not only a creative vision expressed through his fiction and poetry, but a broader vision of our entire country and its complicated history. So for me, there is something remarkable about this man that I find deeply moving, always.”


Manning’s poems have appeared in The New Yorker, Time, Shenandoah, The Southern Review, Washington Square, Green Mountains Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, Spoon River Poetry Review, Wind, Hunger Mountain, Black Warrior Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, and elsewhere. His collection The Common Man was one of the two finalists for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. He has held a fellowship to the Fine Arts Works Center in Provincetown and was a 2011 Guggenheim Fellow.


Manning’s first collection, Lawrence Booth’s Book of Visions, won the Yale Series of Younger Poets Competition in 2001 (under W. S. Merwin). Dwight Garner, literary critic for The New York Times, said in a review of the book that “Manning displays not just terrific cunning but terrific aim–he nails his images the way a restless boy, up in a tree with a slingshot, nails anything sentient that wanders into view”. His fourth collection, The Common Man (Houghton Mifflin, 2010), deals with religion, Kentucky, whiskey, and a donkey, and was praised as a “fine collection” by Jacob Sunderlin in the Sycamore Review. During his Guggenheim fellowship, he worked on his fifth collection, The Gone and the Going Away. His newest collection, One Man’s Dark, was published in 2016 by Copper Canyon Press and focuses on rural America, and on living life in close contact with the natural world.


Manning was born in Danville, Kentucky. He attended Earlham College and the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. From 2000 to 2004, Manning taught at DePauw University. In the fall of 2004 he began teaching in the Indiana University M.F.A. Program.

He lives on a 20-acre farm in Washington County, Kentucky.
