May Swenson

A Poet's Life in Photos

R. R. Knudson & Suzzanne F. Bigelow

A major figure in American letters, May Swenson has been praised by writers as diverse as John Ciardi, Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Howard, and Elizabeth Bishop.

In May Swenson: A Poet's Life in Photos, Knudson and Bigelow offer the first detailed look at Swenson's life through the letters, journals, and photos left by the poet herself and by those who knew her best. Over 160 photos and 30 poems—some previously unpublished—are included. The anthology at the end offers a representative selection from the major phases of her life as a poet.
