    Wright, James

    James Wright (1927 – 1980) is widely considered to be one of the finest American poets of his generation, admired by both critics and fellow poets. He experimented with style and language but his themes – loneliness and alienation – remained the same. He published numerous collections, starting with The Green Wall (Yale University Press, 1957).  Above the River: The Complete Poems was published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux twelve years after his death.
