Description - The Way It Is by William Stafford

Retrospective collection of William Stafford's work, celebrating the life and writing of one of America's most important poets. Recipient of a National Book Award and Oregon's Poet Laureate, Stafford engaged in a lifetime of writing, habitually composing in the hours before dawn. Remembered both for his outstanding poetry and his continued generosity towards other writers and readers, Stafford is rightly considered as a member of the first family of modern poetry, comfortably taking a place alongside such luminaries as Robert Frost and W. Carlos Williams.

William Stafford was born in Hutchinson, Kansas, in 1914. After the Second World War (to which he was a conscientious objector), he earned a Ph.D. at the newly created Iowa Writer's Workshop. A longtime lecturer, workshop leader, and advocate on behalf of younger writers and readers, Stafford taught English at Lewis and Clark College from 1956 to 1979. He was awarded the National Book Award in Poetry for Traveling through the Dark. The author of over fifty books, Stafford remains one of the most beloved and widely read poets in contemporary American letters. He died in Oregon, where he had formerly served as the state's poet laureate, in 1993.
