Biographical Sketch

A classicist, linguist, poet, and translator of ancient Egyptian mythology and contemporary Arabic poetry, Susan Brind Morrow is the author of three collections of nonfiction. Her first book, The Names of Things (Riverhead Press, 1997), chronicles her search for the birth of language in the expansive deserts of Egypt and Sudan. Interwoven with her etymological discussions are Morrow’s reflections on her early years growing up in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The Names of Things was a finalist for the PEN/Martha Albard Award for the Art of the Memoir. In Wolves and Honey (Houghton Mifflin, 2004), Morrow’s second collection, she explores more deeply her relationship to the Finger Lakes region. The memoir details the lives and passing of two family friends within the context of the history and mythology of the Finger Lakes region. Morrow delves into theosophy, the start of Mormonism, and the lasting relationships humans have cultivated with the natural environment, especially the history and continuing practices of trapping and bee-keeping in Upstate New York. In The Dawning Moon of the Mind (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2015), Morrow argues for the Pyramid Texts as a coherent work of art, as a religious and philosophical text and as one of the origins of poetic thought in Western culture.
