About this Item

In reference to an earlier letter in which Snodgrass responds to Claire request that he send a photo copy of his essay (not included) "poems-paintings" for an anthology that Claire is working on about the connection of poetry and the visual arts, Snodgrass notes that he already had a "xerox" of the essay and that it is "all marked up with possible cuts for shorter performances with numbers indicating the places where I have showed slides." 15 lines written in red ink and signed Best wishes. Snodgrass won the Pulitzer Prize in 1960 for his poetry collection: Heart's Needle (1959). W. D. Snodgrass was born on January 5, 1926 in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. Snodgrass's first poems appeared in 1951, and throughout the 1950s he published in some of the most prestigious magazines: Botteghe Oscure, Partisan Review, The New Yorker, The Paris Review and The Hudson Review. However, in 1957, five sections from a sequence entitled 'Heart's Needle' were included in Hall, Pack and Simpson's anthology, New Poets of England and America, By the time Heart's Needle was published, in 1959, Snodgrass had already won The Hudson Review Fellowship in Poetry and an Ingram Merrill Foundation Poetry Prize.
