Unsigned Autograph Note to a teacher, pleading illness as the cause of a slow response
Autograph Note unsigned, ¼p, 8½x11. Written at bottom of a note dated 1994 August 8, from a teacher requesting that he autograph some materials [which are not included here]. In full: "Very sorry for the Slow response, I've been very ill." James Dickey (1923-1997) worked in advertising for Coca Cola and Frito-Lay's before publishing his first book of poetry in 1960. His 1965 collection, Buckdancer's Choice, won the National Book Award, and he was appointed Poet Laureate of the Library of Congress the following year. Despite his distinguished career as a poet, Dickey is perhaps best known for his 1970 novel, Deliverance, for which he also wrote the screenplay of the 1972 Oscar-nominated film. Dickey suffered from alcoholism and many other afflictions in his later years and was in and out of hospitals, so much of his later poetry dealt with sickness and death. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
