Collection Historical Note

Louise Bogan (August 11, 1897 – February 4, 1970) was an American poet.  Born in Livermore Falls, Maine, Bogan attended Boston Girls’ Latin School and spent one year at Boston University.  The majority of her poetry was written in the earlier half of her life when she published Body of This Death (1923), Dark Summer (1929), and The Sleeping Fury (1937). She also translated works by Ernst Jünger, Goethe, and Jules Renard. Later in Bogan's life, a volume of her collected works, The Blue Estuaries: Poems 1923-1968, was published with such poems as "The Dream" and "Women."

Her poetry was published in The New Republic, The Nation, Poetry: A Magazine of Verse, Scribner's, and Atlantic Monthly. Her Collected Poems: 1923-1953 won her the Bollingen award in 1955 as well as an award from the Academy of American Poets in 1959.  Bogan served as poetry reviewer of The New Yorker from 1931 until 1969 and was appointed the fourth Poet Laureate to the Library of Congress in 1945.
