JAMES WRIGHT
Pulitzer Prize-winning poet who battled alcoholism signs his poem, "The Last Drunk."
Typed Poem signed: "James Wright", 1p, 8½x11. All six verses of his poem, "The Last Drunk." James Arlington Wright (1927-1980) won the Yale Younger Poets Prize in 1956 for his first collection of verses, The Green Wall. With The Branch Will Not Break (1963), he abandoned traditional meter for a more experimental poetry. Wright won the Pulitzer in 1972 for his Collected Poems. The confessional themes of his poetry were influenced by his friendship with Robert Bly, leader of the self-help Men's Movement. In 2004, Wright's son Franz won the Pulitzer in Poetry, making the Wright's the only father/son pair to win a Pulitzer in the same category. An annual James Wright Poetry Festival in the poet' birthplace, Martin's Ferry, Ohio, honors his memory. Fine condition.
