Anthony Hecht described Donald Justice as 'among other things, the supreme heir of Wallace Stevens.' This memorial volume of his complete poetry testifies to his subtle and enduring brilliance. With painterly vividness and plainspoken elegance he endeavoured to make the local views which his titles often evoke - "Bus Stop", "Men at Forty", "Dance Lessons of the Thirties" - part of the literary heritage from which he so often took solace and inspiration.
Donald Justice was born in Miami, Florida, in 1925 and grew up there. He studied musical composition at the University of Miami. His 1979 `Selected Poems' was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, one of many grants and distinctions he received. He taught at the universities of Syracuse, Florida and Iowa and after retirement lived in Iowa City, where he died in 2004.
