The life of John Berryman by John Haffenden( Book )

18 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 1,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Berryman occupies a central place among the outstanding poets of recent times. Homage to Mistress Bradstreet, which Edmund Wilson called "the most distinguished long poem by an American since "The Waste Land", and The Dream Songs, an astonishing modern epic in which Berryman displayed much of his personality and experience, together earned him the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for peotry. The autobiographical daring of his poetry, which began as early as 1947 with Berryman's Sonnets, a sequence charting the fortunes of a love affair (not published until 1976), roused the wide interest in the poet's life-story which this biography is designed to meet. -- Book jacket

William Empson : among the Mandarins by John Haffenden( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Empson (1906-1984) was the foremost English literary critic of the twentieth century. He was a man of huge energy and curiosity and a genuine eccentric. The discovery of contraceptives in his possession at Cambridge led to his losing a fellowship, yet his first book, drafted while he was still an undergraduate, brought him world-wide fame. Empson invented modern literary criticism in English, challenging received doctrine in life and literature. "It is a very good thing for a poet ... to be saying something which is considered very shocking at the time," he maintained. His public life took him through the rise of imperialism in Japan, the Sino-Japanese war in China, wartime propaganda for the BBC, and the Chinese civil war and Communist takeover of Peking in 1949. His friends and sparring partners included I.A. Richards, J.B.S. Haldane, George Orwell, Robert Lowell, Dylan Thomas, Stephen Spender, Helen Gardner, and T.S. Eliot.--From publisher description
