Poet, playwright and literary critic Mark Van Doren (1894-1972) won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1940 for his Collected Poems.

Van Doren wrote literary studies of Shakespeare and Hawthorne, among others. He was the brother of Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Carl Van Doren, and the father of Charles Van Doren, caught in the rigged quiz show scandals of 1959.  Lightly toned. Irregularly cut edges.
