About this Item

A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with just a touch of edge wear. Louise Bogan has been called by some critics the most accomplished woman poet of the twentieth century. Her subtle, restrained style was partially influenced by writers such as Rilke and Henry James. Louise Bogan's letters are so full of pithy observations, of personal drama, of bright bitchy remarks on friend or foe, of gossipy, candid, even distressing reports of literary rivalries or power-plays. For decades the poetry critic of The New Yorker, a Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress, and one of the better lyric poets of her era, the late Miss Bogan writes with veracity and wit, a darkening of the spirit here and there and, above all, extreme independence.
