James Wright (1927-1980) is one of the foremost figures in postmodern American poetry. Among the most widely honored and respected poets of his generation, he was once described in The New York Times Book Review as "a national treasure." With his friend and fellow poet, Robert Bly, Wright was instrumental in the development of nondiscursive imagery as a poetic method. This bibliography is the first comprehensive record of Wright's work as well as the criticism that has resulted from it. The first part, "Writings by James Wright," is divided into sections for books, periodical appearances of both poems and translations, prose works, anthologies, sound recordings, video recordings, and book blurbs. A physical description of American first editions is provided in the books section. Annotations and content notes are given where appropriate. Part Two, "Writings About James Wright," provides annotated entries for books, articles and parts of books, reviews, dissertations, poems, dedications, and miscellany.
