"Squires begins with 'The Early Years': Tate's family background and strong Southern ties; his sporadic early schooling, and unsuccessful attempt to become a violinist; and his studies at Vanderbil t University, which eventually led him to literature and a writing career. As a member of the Fugitive Group at Vanderbilt, Tate formed lasting friendships with John Crowe Ransom, Robert Penn Warren, and several others. A short free-lance c a r e e r i n New York and a year abroad on a Guggenheim fellowship broadened Tate's awareness and expanded his circle of friends to include such writers as Hart Crane, T.S. Eliot, and Ernest Hemingway. Tate eventually settled in the South and w as a ct iv e in th e Southern Agrarian Movement of the Thirties. His editorship of 'The Sewanee Review' from 1944 to 1946, made that magazine an important cultural journal....(As a poet, Tate pursued) a vision that rises above the modern fragme nt ati on of tho ug ht a nd feeling, (becoming) one of the masters of the modernist period in poetry, and was awarded the Bollingen Prize in Poetry in 1956. In addition, Tate's talents as critic, novelist, biographer, and editor are discussed fully , w ith int ell igen ce and s ens itivity." light browning and soiling on top of textblock - very light browning on fore-edge, very light edge wear.
