Biography | show moreshow less
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, quoted here, which pitted four "city slickers" against nature and the violent instincts of man in backwoods Georgia. Dickey later wrote the screenplay for the 1972 film version, which was nominated for three Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director (John Boorman).
