May Swenson

A Poet's Life in Photos

by R. R. Knudson and 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, R. R. Knudson and Suzzanne F. Bigelow offer the first detailed look at Swenson's life through the letters, journals, and photographs left by the poet herself and by those who knew her best. Over 160 photographs and 30 poems—some previously unpublished—are included. The anthology at the end offers a representative selection from the major phases of Swenson's life as a poet.
