About the Author

Dunstan Thompson (1918-75) was a Harvard-educated poet and author who was considered a rising star in the Anglo-American literary scene during World War II after the publication of two critically acclaimed collections. Shortly thereafter he disappeared from public life, to the surprise of many admirers. Now, forty years after his death, the publication of his selected poems reveals a deep inner conflict about his Catholic and gay identities that led to a personal crisis after the war. The next phase of Thompson's career took place out of public view, in part because the changes in his poetic style and subject matter were out of step with the fashions of the time. This volume makes it possible for readers and critics to recognize Thompson's place in the annals of twentieth-century literature.

Dana Gioia is an internationally acclaimed and award-winning poet. Former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, Gioia is a native Californian of Italian and Mexican descent. He received a B.A. and a M.B.A. from Stanford University and an M.A. in Comparative Literature from Harvard University. Gioia currently serves as the Poet Laureate of California.

Gioia has published five full-length collections of poetry, most recently 99 Poems: New & Selected. His poetry collection, Interrogations at Noon, won the 2002 American Book Award. An influential critic as well, Gioia's 1991 volume Can Poetry Matter?, which was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle award, is credited with helping to revive the role of poetry in American public culture. In 2014 he won the Aiken-Taylor Award for lifetime achievement in American poetry.
