F. O. Matthiessen was a Californian by birth but grew up in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New York. Educated both here and abroad, he started teaching in 1927, first at Yale and then at Harvard, where he was Professor of History and Literature.

He was a member of the National Institute of Arts and Letters and a Senior Fellow of the Kenyon School of English.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Renee Thorpe on June 11, 2000
Format: Hardcover
Goes up to the middle of the 20th C. (Has Sandburg and Stevens but not Ginsburg and Giovanni).
A nice volume that I refer to often, packs a thousand pages and fits in my hand. Nicely portable for so much text. Organized in chronological order of poets' dates of birth.
