Details

James Atlas, the biographer of the American poet Delmore Schwartz and the novelist Saul Bellow, reflects on the pursuit of literary biography and tells his own story as a biographer, from his student days studying under Richard Ellman at Oxford, to his ‘archaic laments’ in the age of email; but also traces the history of biography and great literary biographers, from Plutarch’s Lives to Richard Holmes’s Coleridge.
