Elizabeth Bishop

Although she wrote less than many of her peers, the evident mastery of her poems secured for Elizabeth Bishop a leading position in American culture. Praised from the start for their clarity, wittily observed details, and tonal control, the descriptive surfaces of Bishop's poems reveal dark, abiding mysteries. She is the true successor to Robert Frost.
