TRANSCRIPT Author and Poet James Dickey died yesterday. ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: James Dickey may have been best known for his novel "Deliverance" from which a popular film was made, but he was, above all, a poet. An early collection of his work "Buckdancer’s Choice" won the 1966 National Book Award for Poetry. In all, he published more than 20 books, including first novels and criticism. Here to tell us more is Stanley Plumly, professor of English at the University of Maryland and a poet himself. Thanks for being with us. STANLEY PLUMLY, Poet: Thank you for having me. ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: Tell us something about James Dickey and how he became a poet. STANLEY PLUMLY: Well, Dickey, I think is a kind of a model for a lot of American writers of my generation and the generation before me. He started out ashe was a big man. He started out as an athlete, both in high school and in college. You had always a sensehe was a serious athleteyou had the sense about him that he was caged, and that he had something powerful in him he wanted to say. And I suppose as an athlete that was one way to articulate it. For a long time he was an advertising executive with the Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a Georgian and a deep Southerner, to the soul, and would write poems on his off moments and decided that that was the direction he wanted to go in. ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: He also flew bombing missions in World War II and in Korea. There’s a sense of danger and death always in hisoften in his poetry, isn’t there?

This volume brings together the finest work from each of the periods in Dickey's extremely controversial career. For over three decades, until his death in 1997, Dickey was one of the nation's most important poets; these are the poems that brought him a popular readership and critical acclaim.
JAMES DICKEY, born in Atlanta in 1923, is most widely known as the author of the novel and screenplay Deliverance. He is also the author of several other novels and fifteen books of poetry. His many honors include the National Book Award and a Melville Cane Award for Buckdancer's Choice (1965). He was invited to read at President Carter's inauguration in 1977, and most recently served as Judge of the prestigious Yale Younger Poets series. He died in 1997 in South Carolina.

James Dickey. Approaching Prayer. Dickey, James, (1923 — 1997), US poet and novelist,most widely known as the author of the novel and screenplay Deliverance.

James Dickey
Approaching Prayer
A moment tries to come in
Through the windows, when one must go
Beyond what there is in the room,
But it must come straight down.
Lord, it is time,
And I must get up and start
To circle through my father's empty house Looking for things to put on Or to strip myself of So that I can fall to my knees And produce a word I can't say Until all my reason is slain. Here is the gray sweater My father wore in the cold, The snapped threads growing all over it Like his gray body hair. The spurs of his gamecocks glimmer Also, in my light, dry hand. And here is the head of a boar I once helped to kill with two arrows: Two things of my father's Wild, Bible-reading life And my own best and stillest moment In a hog's head waiting for glory. All these I set up in the attic, The boar's head, gaffs, and the sweater On a chair, and gaze in the dark Up into the boar's painted gullet. Nothing. Perhaps I should feel more foolish, Even, than this. I put on the ravelled nerves And gray hairs of my tall father In the dry grave growing like fleece Strap his bird spurs to my heels And kneel down under the skylight.

JAMES DICKEY. En route, when the Crumlin men thought they spied someone hidingahead, James Dickey reconnoitred the area but could find noone.
[Please use 'BACK' or 'GO' button] JAMES DICKEY The United Irishmen in Crumlin (10 miles south of Antrim) were very active in recruiting members and sending financial contributions (with two delegates) from their monthly parochial meeting to the district Baronial Committee One of the esteemed delegates, elected by secret ballot, to represent the Baronial Committee at County Committee level was Crumlin's energetic (and at times eccentric) attorney- James Dickey. When one of the Crumlin members became ill, Dickey had presented him with the princely sum of five shillings and five pence from society funds; a common practice in United Irish societies. Dickey also procured supplies of steel which he delivered to the local blacksmith (called Fleeting), so that pikes could be manufactured at a reasonable price for the Crumlin members. June 7, 1798 With orders to rendezvous with Henry Joy McCracken's forces at Muckamore, James Dickey proudly led his small army out of Crumlin, armed variously with pikes, bayonets, guns, pitchforks and bare fists. En route, when the Crumlin men thought they spied someone hiding ahead, James Dickey reconnoitred the area but could find no-one. After reassuring his men that they could proceed safely, his force moved on towards Muckamore.

Educational site dedicated to the works of poet james dickey.Category Arts Literature American 20th Century dickey, james...... His published early notebooks Striking In The Early Notebooks of james dickey,edited by Gordon Van Ness - although not begun until several years later
Photo by Rollie McKenna James Lafayette Dickey, III, destined to become nationally and internationally recognized as poet, novelist, essayist, and critic, was born in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, February 2, 1923. The third child of Maibelle Swift Dickey and Eugene Dickey, his birth occurred at Piedmont Hospital.
Thus, a third child and second son, James L. Dickey, III, was named after his grandfather (James Lafayette Dickey (29 September 1847 - 29 October 1910), and his uncle, James Lafayette Dickey, Jr. (13 September 1875 - 15 May 1968). A fourth child, another son, was named Thomas Swift Dickey (5 February 1925 - 8 December 1987).
Jim's poetry career began, as he related, when his letters to girls back home -"who I didn't want to forget me"- reached a stage of imaginative development that even the nineteen-year-old writing from the South Pacific could recognize. He began to read widely while in the South Pacific, asking his mother to send him volumes and volumes of poetry of both the classic poets and the contemporary poets. His published early notebooks - Striking In: The Early Notebooks of James Dickey

Add to a Notebook James Dickey Dylan Thomas and Kenneth Patchen When he returned from the war, Dickey enrolled in Vanderbilt University in Tennessee, where he studied anthropology, astronomy, philosophy, and foreign languages as well as English literature. A professor, Monroe K. Spears, encouraged Dickey to write more poetry, and as a senior Dickey had a poem published in the Sewanee Review . Determined to write, he pursued graduate work, first at Vanderbilt, then at Rice University in Texas. The Air Force recalled Dickey to train officers for the Korean War. On his return he took a position with the University of Florida, where a dispute arose over the propriety of a poem he read to a group. He abruptly resigned in April 1956 and went to New York at the age of thirty-three, where McCann-Ericson soon hired him to write advertising copy. He stayed in New York for several years before moving to Atlanta agencies. In 1961 Dickey gave up the work to accept a Guggenheim Fellowship and spend a year in Italy with his family. Two of his most famous volumes of verse, Helmets (1964) and Buckdancer's Choice Deliverance . The book, which was later made into a major motion picture, exposed readers to scenes of violence and nightmarish horror, much as his poetry had done. In 1977 Dickey read at President Carter's inauguration, and later served as judge of the Yale Younger Poets series.

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback James (Lafayette) Dickey (1923-1997) American poet, novelist, critic, athlete, and hunter with bow and arrow, best-known from his novel DELIVERANCE (1970), an adventure story of four businessmen canoeing down a dangerous river in rural Georgia. The trip becomes a nightmare of survival. Dickey's dominant medium was poetry, not bestselling fiction. He maintained that poetry should be concerned with basic emotions. "The poet is not trying the tell the truth. He's trying to make it." In his interest in hunting and the outdoors, Dickey came close to Ernest Hemingway. 'Funny thing about up younder,' he said. 'The whole thing's different. I mean the whole way of taking life and the terms you take it on.'
'What should I know about that?' I said.
'The trouble is,' he said, 'that you not only don't know anything about it, you don't want to know anything about it.'
'Why should I?'
'Because, for the Lord's sake, there may be something important in the hills. Do you know that?'

(from Deliverance James Dickey was born in Atlanta, Georgia. In high school and at Clemson College Dickey played football and gave promise of an athletic career. In 1942 he interrupted his education and joined the air force. Dickey served as a radio intercept officer; the pilot that he frequently rode with was Earl E. Bradley. During this period Dickey started to read poetry. He claimed that he "eased into poetry" during an artillery attack in the South Pacific. Dickey continued to study literature, earning his M.A. degree from Vanderbilt University in 1950. But academic career did not attract him. When the Korean War broke out, Dickey served as a training officer in the Air Force. After the war he worked as a teacher and from 1956 to 1959 he was as an advertising copy writer for McCann-Erickson in New York.
