    About Author

    1. James Dickey says:
      Dickey was born in Atlanta, Georgia After serving as a pilot in the Second World War, he attended Vanderbilt University Having earned an MA in 1950, Dickey returned to military duty in the Korean War, serving with the US Air Force Upon return to civilian life Dickey taught at Rice University in Texas and then at the University of Florida From 1955 to 1961, he worked for advertising agencies in New York and Atlanta After the publication of his first book, Into the Stone Middletown, Conn 1962 , he left advertising and began teaching at various colleges and universities He became poet in residence and Carolina Professor of English at the University of South Carolina.Dickey s third volume, Buckdancer s Choice Middletown, 1965 , won the prestigious National Book Award in Poetry From 1966 to 1968 he served as poetry consultant to the Library of Congress In 1977 Dickey read his poem The Strength of Fields at President Carter s inauguration The Hollywood film of his novel Deliverance Boston, 1970 brought Dickey fame not normally enjoyed by poets.Dickey s poems are a mixture of lyricism and narrative In some volumes the lyricism dominates, while in others the narrative is the focus The early books, influenced obviously though not slavishly by Theodore Roethke and perhaps Hopkins, are infused with a sense of private anxiety and guilt Both emotions are called forth most deeply by the memories of a brother who died before Dickey was born In the Tree House at Night and his war experiences Drinking From a Helmet These early poems generally employ rhyme and metre.With Buckdancer s Choice, Dickey left traditional formalism behind, developing what he called a split line technique to vary the rhythm and look of the poem Some critics argue that by doing so Dickey freed his true poetic voice Others lament that the lack of formal device led to rhetorical, emotional, and intellectual excess The truth probably lies somewhere between these two assessments, and it will be left to the reader to decide which phase of Dickey s career is most attractive.Dickey s most comprehensive volume is The Whole Motion Hanover, NH, and London, 1992 His early poems are collected in The Early Motion Middletown, 1981 Recent individual volumes include The Eagle s Mile Hanover and London, 1990 and Falling, May Day Sermon, and Other Poems Hanover and London, 1982 Dickey has also published collections of autobiographical essays, Self Interviews Garden City, NY, 1970 repr New York, 1984 and Sorties Garden City, 197 1 repr New York, 1984.From The Oxford Companion to Twentieth century Poetry in English Ed Ian Hamilton Oxford Oxford University Press, 1994 Copyright 1994 by Oxford University Press.

      This is a volume of poetry I constantly pick up and read or reread Howard Starks and Dennis Letts first brought Dickey to my attention in the mid seventies in college They were both incredible teachers and pure genius when it came to selecting poetry When I heard Dennis read Looking For The Buckhead Boys in that stage and screen voice of his, I was sold, and when Howard chipped in with his love of Dickey s work I began to read it all Thirty years later I m as hooked as I ever was Regardless of w [...]

      Thrilling, chilling and unnerving From the fantasy eroticism of The Sheep Child to well and way beyond Read this to learn how to make words sing.

      Have read much of this book before, in the early and mid 70s, as the individual volumes were being published Wesleyan has now published a number of these as ebooks, including this one, and I m looking forward to catching up on the poems I d missed If memory serves, one of the books collected here BUCKDANCER S CHOICE took a National Book Award for poetry its year one of the poems from that collection is a nice little chiller called Pursuit from Under and it s well worth a look.
