Delmore Schwartz: The Life of an American Poet is based on interviews, letters, and an extraordinary collection of unpublished papers that had never before been examined. Delmore Schwartz was only twenty-four in 1938 when his first book, In Dreams Begin Responsibilities, was published. He received praise from T. S.

A decade later, the short-story collection The World Is a Wedding was published; many critics characterized it as the definitive portrait of their generation. In this biography, the first about the man whom John Berryman called "the most underrated poet of the twentieth century," James Atlas traces Schwartz's history, from the arrival of his Romanian ancestors in New York, to his youth in Washington Heights, to his career at Harvard as a graduate student in philosophy, and onward to the flowering of his generation in the '40s, when he and the critics, poets, and novelists who were his friends made their reputations.

A thoroughly engrossing story about the real life person who inspired Saul Bellow to write Humboldt's Gift. Delmore was a tragic figure, a most promising writer and critic, who never quite lived up to his promise and , knowing this, ended up unhappy and unfulfilled. ( )
