Witter Bynner

a.k.a. Harold Witter Bynner, Emanuel Morgan *

Author Code: AWBY

Born: Aug. 10, 1881 - Brooklyn, New York, USA

Died: Jun. 1, 1968 - Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

Educated at Brookline High School and Harvard University where he graduated in 1902. While at Harvard, Bynner wrote for The Advocate, the student literary magazine edited by Wallace Stevens. In 1907, he published An Ode to Harvard (he subsequently changed it to Young Harvard in 1925). He worked for McClure's Magazine for some years before moving to New Hampshire and becoming an independent writer. He conspired with Arthur Davison Ficke and Marjorie Seiffert on a literary hoax purporting to involve a new poetic movement known as the Spectrists. In 1917, he toured the Far East with Ficke and on his return joined the faculty of Berkeley where he taught for two years. In 1920, he spent a year in China studying Chinese literature and culture. In 1922, he went to Santa Fe, New Mexico as part of a lecture tour and decided to stay. A homosexual, Bynner lived there with his former student Walter Johnson. From 1921 to 1923 he was president of the Poetry Society of America. Over the next forty years, Bynner became friends with the cream of literary society including Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence, Carl Sandburg, Robert Frost and Thornton Wilder. Bynner had developed a melodious lyrical style in his poetry and he reached a high level of popularity in the 1920s. Together with professor Kiang Kang-Hu, he translated the T'Ang Dynasty poems, published as The Jade Mountain in 1929. His other works include The New World (1915), Grenstone Poems (1917), The Beloved Stranger (1919), A Canticle of Pan and Other Poems (1920), A Book of Plays (1922), Caravan (1925), Against the Cold (1940), The Way of Life According to Laotzu (1944), Journey With Genius (1951) and New Poems (1960).
