About the book:

Winner of the 1999 Agnes Lynch Starrett Prize

The thirty-three narrative, linguistically-adventurous poems in She Didn't Mean to Do It range freely among styles and voices. Examining human emotions and behavior in all their contradictions, Daisy Fried turns a perceptive eye on those around her. Fried integrates metaphoric flights and idiosyncratic narrative, surprising us with the details--"I saw the that wisteria/ in dusk its same color hung (heavier than /the breasts of stabbed and stabber ever would be)"--while her characters traipse across lines and pages. These are poems about human relationships, mostly romantic and sexual. They're also about jobs and work: urban, action-packed and socially aware.

Starrett Poetry Prize winners are published as part of the Pitt Poetry Series, which was founded in 1968 by the University of Pittsburgh Press to publish the best in contemporary American poetry. Since 1978 Ed Ochester has edited the series, and he serves as final judge of the Starrett competition.In 1990 American Bookseller pronounced the Pitt Poetry Series the first among five "outstanding" university press series in the field of poetry.
