Alexander King (author)

Alexander King, born Alexander Koenig in Vienna, was a bestselling humorist and media personality of the early television era, based in the United States. In his late fifties, after becoming a frequent guest on the a Tonight Show hosted by Jack Paar, King emerged as an incongruous presence in the realm of national celebrity: an aging, irascible raconteur, with elegant mannerisms and trademark bow-tie, who spoke frankly and disarmingly about his bohemian lifestyle, multiple marriages, years-long struggle with drug addiction, his checkered past led TIME magazine to describe him as "an ex-illustrator, ex-cartoonist, ex-adman, ex-editor, ex-playwright, ex-dope addict. For a quarter-century he was an ex-painter, by his own bizarre account qualifies as an ex-midwife, he is an ex-husband to three wives and an ex-Viennese of sufficient age to remember muttonchopped Emperor Franz Joseph. When doctors told him a few years ago that he might soon be an ex-patient, he sat down to tell gay stories of the life of all these earlier Kings."

He was the author of several books, including May This House Be Safe from Tigers, Mine Enemy Grows Older, I Should Have Kissed Her More, Is There Life After Birth. He illustrated and/or translated numerous editions of classics in the early 20th century as well as a book by Peter Altenberg released as Alexander King Presents Peter Altenberg's Evocations of Love. King's easy conversational recollections of the first part of the 20th century are informative and funny.

William Dickey (poet)

William Hobart Dickey was an American poet and professor of English and creative writing at San Francisco State University. He authored 15 books of poetry over a career. Dickey was born in 1928 in Bellingham and was raised in Washington and Oregon, he attended Reed College, graduating in 1951. At Reed he was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa Society, he was awarded a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and went on to study at Harvard University and the University of Iowa. As a Fulbright scholar he studied at Jesus College at the University of Oxford from 1959 to 1960. Dickey was a student of John Berryman at the Iowa Writers' Workshop, he recalled: First to have been at Reed College as an undergraduate with Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen and Lew Welch, second to have been in John Berryman's extraordinary and intense poetry workshop with W. D. Snodgrass, Donald Justice, Philip Levine, Paul Petrie, Robert Dana, Constance Urdang, Jane Cooper, Donald Finkel, Henri Coulette—the list continues beyond the capacity of my memory, but it was a course I approached with rapture and fear, owing in part to Berryman's sometimes jagged abruptness, as when, having warned me beforehand that he was going to exhibit the profound mortality of one of my works, he held it out at arm's length in the class, looked at it with loathing, said, "Now, what are we to say about this ridiculous poem?"

Dickey's first collection of poetry, Of the Festivity, was selected by W. H. Auden as the winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets Competition in 1959. In the foreword to the book, Auden wrote: It is possible to show evidence of great intelligence and sensibility but to be lacking in the first power essential to poetry, the power to speak, Mr. Dickey's lines have both. Among Dickey's subsequent collections of poetry, More Under Saturn won a silver medal from the Commonwealth Club of California in 1972, The Rainbow Grocery received the Juniper Prize from the University of Massachusetts Press in 1978. Dickey was an instructor in English at Cornell University from 1956 to 1959, an assistant professor of English at Denison University from 1960 to 1962. In 1962 he joined the faculty of San Francisco State University as a professor of English and creative writing, teaching there until his retirement in 1991. Dickey lived in San Francisco with his companion Leonard Sanazaro, a poet who taught English and creative writing at the City College of San Francisco.

Dickey died in 1994 at Kaiser Hospital in San Francisco. The cause was complications from HIV-related surgeries. Shortly before his death, Dickey finished a poem, "The Death of John Berryman," about the suicide of his former teacher, it was published posthumously in Poetry and The Best American Poetry 1997. In 1996 a collection of Dickey's poems and books was deposited at the Gay and Lesbian Center at the San Francisco Public Library. Dickey's published works of poetry include: Of the Festivity Interpreter's House Rivers of the Pacific Northwest More Under Saturn Sheena The Rainbow Grocery The Sacrifice Consenting Six Philosophical Songs Joy Brief Lives The King of the Golden River In the Dreaming The Education of Desire His poems have appeared in many anthologies, including: The Best American Poetry 1996 The Best American Poetry 1997 Dickey experimented with Hypercard poetry, available at the Maryland Institute of Technology in the Humanities William H.
