|Personal Fact of James Wright
James Arlington Wright was a Pulitzer Prize winning American poet born in late 1920s in the industrial town of Martins Ferry, located in the valley of Ohio River, into a working class family. His family was never well off, but with the onset of the Great Depression, the situation became even worse.
Yet, growing up in the midst of such desolate condition, witnessing poverty and human suffering all around him, did not deter him from appreciating the beauty of nature or even god literature. Inspired by Lord Byron, he wrote his first poem at the age of eleven. In later years, he often drew on the images he had witnessed as a child and his work talked as much about sorrow as about salvation and self-revelation.
He was a prolific writer, having published ten collections of poems in his lifetime only. In addition to such original work, he had also translated the works of foreign writers like Trakl, Vallejo, Hermann Hesse, and Pablo Neruda, being influenced by them in return.
