Biographical / Historical Note

Born in Austin, Minnesota, and a graduate of Dartmouth (1926) and Cambridge (1929), Richard Eberhart’s poetry is noted for its simplicity and directness. Perhaps his most frequent theme is that of the loss of innocence and spontaneity. Among his volumes of poetry are A Bravery of Earth (1930), Undercliff (1953), Shifts of Being (1968), Collected Poems, 1930-1976 (1976), and New and Selected Poems: 1930-1990 (1990). His Collected Verse Plays was published in 1962. See study by Ralph J. Mills, Jr. (1966).
