The famed early twentieth-century poet signs his name in black ink
Signature: "Phelps Porter" in black ink. 1 page, 6x4½. Phelps Porter (1894-1948) was an American poet. Born in Massachusetts, Porter studied at Philips Exeter and Yale, where he was a member of Skull and Bones, as well as was among the "Renaissance" generation of Yale-educated writers which included Stephen Vincent Benet, Henry R. Luce, Archibald MacLeish, Cole Porter, and Thornton Wilder. After college Porter traveled Europe working odd jobs before publishing his first book of poems Trinc (1927), which was followed by works such as The Earthly Comedy and The Five Seasons (1931). He died early due to his asthma and alcoholism, but is remembered for his love of life which superseded his literary career, including affairs with Katharine Hepburn and Russell Cheney. Binding holes in left margin. Creased throughout. Ink notes in bottom margin in unknown hand. Slightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
