Educated at Vanderbilt University, Jarrell received his master's degree in 1937. He had the good fortune to study under Robert Penn Warren, who would later publish Jarrell's criticism, and John Crowe Ransom who later hired Jarrell as an instructor at Kenyon College. From 1939 to 1942, Jarrell taught at the University of Texas. He joined the Army Air Force in 1942 and that year also published Blood for a Stranger, his first book of poems. He started as a flying cadet, but soon left the Air Force for the regular army and then worked as a control tower operator. In 1945, he published his second book, Little Friend, Little Friend, an extremely popular work which established his literary reputation. After the war he joined the faculty of the Woman's College of the University of North Carolina and continued in that capacity off and on, until his death. He also teaching terms at the University of Illinois and consultancy for the Library of Congress. Beginning in the early 1960s, Jarrell became depressed and attempted suicide by cutting his wrists.
