“Nostalgic odes to the city are everywhere, but the best thing ever written on the subject is In Dreams Begin Responsibilities.”
- The Village Voice
“Delmore Schwartz catapults past the fickleness of mere reputation(that posture and position that Lionel Trilling defined as characterizing a ‘figure’) into something close to legend.”
- Cynthia Ozick
About the Author
Delmore Schwartz (1913-1966) was born and raised in Brooklyn. One of America’s greatest poets and short-story writers, Schwartz contributed “In Dreams Begin Responsibilities” to the first issue of Partisan Review in 1937. Schwartz taught at Syracuse, Princeton, and Kenyon College, and received the Bollingen Prize in 1959. After a difficult period of alchoholism and depression, he died of a heart attack in 1966.
