About the Author

Delmore Schwartz (1913-1966) was born and raised in Brooklyn. One of America's greatest poets and short-story writers, Schwartz contributed "In Dreams Begin Responsibilities" to the first issue of Partisan Review in 1937. Schwartz taught at Syracuse, Princeton, and Kenyon College, and received the Bollingen Prize in 1959. After a difficult period of alchoholism and depression, he died of a heart attack in 1966. Craig Morgan Teicher is a poet and critic. His most recent book of poems is To Keep Love Blurry (BOA, 2012). He lives with his wife and children in New York City. Pulitzer Prize-winning poet John Ashbery has translated many French writers, including Alfred Jarry, Pierre Reverdy, and Raymond Roussel. In 2011 he was awarded the National Book Foundation's Lifetime Achievement Award.

Reviews

"What complicates and enriches Schwartz's comedy is, I think, a reaching out toward nobility, a shy aspiring spirituality, a moment or two of achieved purity of feeling." -- Irving Howe "I wanted to write. One line as good as yours. My mountain. My inspiration." -- Lou Reed
