C. F. Macintyre


C. F. MacIntyre (1890-1967) said of himself: "My background includes the Scotch Highlands, the bluegrass hills of Kentucky and as much of Europe as I could get at various times." His mother was a student of Latin and Greek but she taught him to read Baudelaire early; his father was more interested in France and Egypt, and he read aloud to his son most of the world's classics. In late adolescence Maclntyre made many canoe and sailing trips, usually alone. He also did about 5000 miles of hoboing. He took a Ph.D. at the University of Marburg, where he fell under the spell of Gothic architecture, plainsong and stained glass. Besides his translation of of Faust, Part I, he published translations of Fifty Selected Poems by Rilke, One Hundred Poems from Les Fleurs du Mal, and Rilke's Life of the Virgin Mary. He was also known for his volumes of original verse, Cafes and Cathedrals, The Black Bulls and Poems
