From Cellar to Garret. " Her own inventory of inhabitable space in PW takes up the significance of the dynamics of inside v. outside (PW 19) and comprises back-, front-, and sideyards (PW 19-23); back doors and screen door (PW 24); front-doors (PW 25); space atmospherically changed by bad news, fear, and death (PW 25-26); or the state of being in two places at once and not there at all (PW 24). She adds kitchens (PW 27), porches (PW 28), stoops (PW 29), as well as the poet laureate's office (PW 33f).

It was followed by Museum (1983) and Thomas and Beulah (1986), both also with Carnegie-Mellon. Thomas and Beulah, a collection of interrelated poems loosely based on her grandparents' life, earned her the 1987 Pulitzer Prize, making her the second African-American poet (after Gwendolyn Brooks in 1950) to receive this prestigious award. Other publications by Dove include her book of short stories Fifth Sunday (1985), the poetry collection Grace Notes (1989), the novel Through the Ivory Gate (1992), and Selected Poems (1993).

In their 1993 collection of essays, Space and Place: Theories of Identity and Location, Erica Carter, James Donald, and Judith Squires reinforce the way space becomes place: By being named: as the flows of power and negotiations of social relations are rendered in the concrete form of architecture; and also, of course, by embodying the symbolic and imaginary investments of a population.
