James Wright’s Northern Italy By New Jersey Poet Sander Zulauf

August 12, 2009

After Baptism there is the new life. After the harsh industrialized landscapes of steel mills and slag heaps, after the impoverished and brutalized lives lived in his native Ohio, after the bitterness of the Minnesota winters, after the wreckage of his marriage to Liberty Kardules and the loss of his sons, after the loss of his position at the University of Minnesota, there was the refuge offered James Wright by Robert and Carol Bly, there was a position at Hunter College, and there was Annie, and James’s new life began with her and took on a whole new dimension when they journeyed together to Italy.
