Louise Bogan: A Portrait
Elizabeth Frank

October 1986
Paperback

Amazon.com
The biography of poet Louise Bogan, who died in 1971, and whose poems collected in The Blue Estuaries, were first published in the 1920s. A prolific writer in her youth, Bogan was overcome by demons she could not master, and as this book reveals, struggled with a temper, paranoia and jealousy greater than anyone might have guessed. While Frank provides insightful descriptions of Bogan's childhood and her problematic relationship with her mother, she offers clues as to why the poet was so private and why it became increasingly difficult for her to write. The book won the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for biography.

Wilson Library Bulletin, Carol Moldaw
A thorough, cogent and dispassionate account of Bogan's life.

Review
"Behind the Bogan poems is a woman, intense, proud, strong-willed. . . . Her poems can be read and reread: they keep yielding new meanings, as all good poetry should. The ground beat of great tradition can be heard, with the necessary and subtle variations. Bogan is one of the true inheritors."--Theodore Roethke

"Now that we can see the sweep of forty-five years' work in this collection of over a hundred poems, we can judge what a feat of character it has been. . . . [Bogan's] is a language as supple as it is accurate, dealing with things in their own tones. . . . Reading this book with delight, I was struck by a career of stubborn, individual excellence."--William Meredith, The New York Review of Books

From Publishers Weekly
Louise Bogan (1897–1970), the poet and longtime poetry reviewer for the New Yorker, was a formidable critic, particularly of her contemporaries. In this intelligently organized volume, poet and critic Kinzie (who founded the undergraduate creative writing program at Northwestern) includes Bogan's previously uncollected short fiction; extracts from her journals recollecting a grim New England mill-town childhood, letters to lifelong friends and colleagues, and Bogan's critical essays. The fifth and last section contains uncollected poems. Self-aware, self-berating and perpetually anxious about her poetic output, Bogan has a sharp and at times neurotic mind fully on display. Her letters reveal the warm intellectual friendships that sustained her—notably with Edmund Wilson, Allen Tate and lover and...

Critic in Love: A Romantic Biography of Edmund Wilson
David Castronovo
1593760507
December 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The coauthors' deep familiarity with their subject (they've written biographies of Wilson and edited his letters) serves them well in this spirited, chatty look at his relationships with the opposite sex. Wilson himself reported on his experiences in thorough and unflinching detail in his journals, and this book is similarly not for the prudish—at times it even takes sly delight in the portly critic's unlikely success as a sexual athlete, claiming that he satisfied all his lovers, even into his late 70s. But the biographers also call attention to intellectual relationships based on "affinity... rather than sex" with such fellow writers as Dorothy Parker and Elinor Wylie. All the couplings, sexual and otherwise, are traced through Wilson's writings and, when available, those of the women. An account of his...
