AUTHOR

Elizabeth Bishop

SUMMARY

Presented in two sections, "Memory: Persons and Places" and "Stories," this book offers the collected prose writings of Elizabeth Bishop (1911-79), one of America's most celebrated and admired poets. The selections are arranged not by date of compostion, but in biographical order, such that reading this volume greatly enriches one's understanding of Bishop's life--and thus her poetry as well. "Bishop's admirers will want to consult her "Collected Prose for the light it sheds on her poetry," as David Lehman wrote in "Newsweek. "They will discover, however, that it is more than just a handsome companion volume to [her] "Complete Poems. . . . Bishop's clean, limpid prose makes her stories and memoirs a delight to read. . . . One regrets only that this volume cannot be added to in years to come."Elizabeth Bishop is the author of 'The Collected Prose', published 1984 under ISBN 9780374518554 and ISBN 0374518556.
