Overview

'Jean Stafford passed over the literary landscape of her day like some bright but wounded butterfly. Driven and self-destructive, yet wielding a scalpel-edged prose, she is often corralled with the Icarus generation of poets that included Robert Lowell (to whom she was famously married), John Berryman, Delmore Schwartz, and Randall Jarrell.
