Etheridge Knight Poems

Published by Joanne

etheridgeEtheridge Knight was an American poet who had a tough start to life and it didn’t get a lot better as he got older. He was one of seven children born into a poor family and his education was just about the bare minimum required in America.  He followed a path that almost inevitably led him into drug dependency and prison by the time he was 29.  It was here though that he started to write poetry and things turned around for him from then on.  He worked hard and became an award winning poet and teacher, although he never really broke free of the drugs.

Knight was born in April 1931in Corinth, Mississippi.  He left school as early as he could, and he spent the majority of his teenage years cruising the seedy world of bars and juke joints.  He frequented pool …

Anaïs Nin Poems

Published by Joanne

anaisAnaïs Nin was an unconventional poet.  Her work did not come in the form of verse or rhyming couplets.  She was, in fact, best known for her diaries and journals, many of which were not published in full until after her death.  She led what most would describe as a “Bohemian” life style including being married to two men at the same time, having affairs with fellow writers and artists and possibly dabbling in bisexuality (certainly in thought, if not in deed).  She will be best remembered though for being in the vanguard of famous female writers of erotica.

Nin was born in Neuilly, France to French-Cuban parents in February 1903 and was christened Angela Anaïs Juana Antolina Rosa Edelmira Nin y Culmell.  She spent her early years in France but then moved to the United States.  Her parents were both artistic.  Father …


Anne Spencer Poems

Published by Joanne

annespencerAnne Spencer was an influential, African-American poet whose long life spanned the end of the 19th and much of the 20th century.  Along with compatriots like Countee Cullen and Langston Hughes, Anne wrote about the struggles of black people to establish themselves in America.  She was one of the driving forces behind the Harlem Renaissance and New Negro Movements of black literature.  Of particular note she became the first black Virginian poet to see her work included in the prestigious Norton Anthology of American Poetry.  Besides being a prolific and talented writer though she cared deeply for the welfare of all poor people in America and worked towards achieving social equality throughout her life.

She was born Annie Bethel Bannister in Henry County, Virginia in February 1882 and was an only child.  Her parents split up when Anne was very young and her …


A.R. Ammons Poems

Published by Joanne

ARThe American poet Archie Randolph Ammons was one of those writers that defies categorisation. He wrote in an unusual style, sometimes without any punctuation. In fact one of his poems, the book-length Garbage, appears to be just one, elongated sentence which has been divided into sections and couplets. Despite being a piece of work that some might have difficulty reading and enjoying, it won the prestigious National Book Award, and he accumulated countless other honours and awards throughout his lifetime. Much of his writing explores our relationships with the natural world and is often portrayed, at first, in a solemn way before suddenly switching into something humorous.

Ammons was born in February 1926 and spent his early years on a cotton and tobacco farm in North Carolina. This was, of course, the time of the Great Depression and his education was interrupted by …


Randall Jarrell Poems

Published by Steven

randall jarrellIrreverent and witty, poet Randall Jarrell was born in Nashville in 1914 and is often better known as critic who had a definite streak of cruelness when he was writing about poets that he didn’t much care for. Known for his plain speaking style, Jarrell went on to become the Library of Congress consultant in poetry, a role which later became the poet laureate.

His writing career began when he used to post articles for the high school magazine in Nashville. From there he went on to Vanderbilt University where he edited their magazine, wrote some of his first poetry, and graduated with a BA in 1935. He taught English at Kenyon College in the heart of Ohio for a couple of years, and even at the age of 23 he was becoming a much admired critic and writer.

In 1939 he was …
