Author Code: AAFK

Born: Dec. 10, 1883 - New York City, New York, USA

Died: Aug. 14, 1966 - New York City, New York, USA

Kreymborg became interested in chess as a child and by the age of ten had become a master player. he took part in numerous tournaments and even played the then world champion, Jose Capablanca, where he managed to get a stalemate in one of the games. He was also musically talented and after he finished high school he landed a job with a player piano company. Desiring to write a symphony, but without the necessary formal musical training, Kreymborg decided to write one in poetry instead and called it The Symphony of Love. In 1905, he published his first work, Edna: The Girl of the Street. The publisher, Guido Bruno, went to court on charges of obscenity, but was acquitted. Nevertheless, the infamy helped Kreymborg to be recognized. In 1913, he befriended a number of Alfred Stieglitz's '291' group and two of them, the Boni brothers, helped to finance the magazine Glebe, which attracted many of the days' important poets such as Ezra Pound and Amy Lowell. In 1915, Kreymborg founded Others, a magazine dedicated to experimental writing and which ran until 1919. In 1921, he was invited to be the editor of Broom magazine in Paris, but after only four issues, he left following a disagreement with the owner, Harold Loeb, as to which authors should be represented. Kreymborg then traveled around Europe with his wife and began writing again, publishing two volumes of poetry and some anthologies. During the Depression, he published The Economic Muse, a poem with a political statement. He continued to write, but his last work of poetry, No More War, and Other Poems, appeared in 1950. His other works include Love and Life and Other Studies (1908), Erna Vitek (1914), Mushrooms (1916), Less Lonely (1923), Troubadour (1925), Funnybone Alley (1927), Body and Stone (1929), I'm No Hero (1933), The Planets: A Modern Allegory (1938) and Man and Shaw: An Allegory (1946).
