|Personal Fact of David Wagoner|
David Wagoner is one of the prolific writers amongst the list of modern American literary scholars. Though media glare and attention has always eluded Wagoner, in comparison to his contemporaries, his work has been received with much appreciation and respect. Often compared to his early mentor, Theodore Roethke, Wagoner is best known for his insightful writing and evocative poems, the most notable of which are Staying Alive and Lost.
Though majorly famous as a poet, he is also a skilled novelist with ten popular novels to his name. Born in Ohio and raised in Indiana, the young boy developed an early interest in literature and started writing by the time he was ten. Bright and creative, he was also an amateur magician and interested in the theatre. He served in the United States Navy for a while before graduating from the Pennsylvania State University. He proceeded to earn his M.A. in English from the Indiana University before embarking on an academic career.
His deep love for poetry manifested itself with the publication of Dry Sun, Dry Wind, the first one of his many collections of poetry. He went on to publish two novels in quick succession while also focusing on establishing himself in his teaching career. By the mid-1960s he had successfully established himself as both a much respected teacher and an insightful poet. Wagoner is the recipient of numerous prestigious literary awards including two Pushcart Prizes and the Academy of Arts and Letters Award.
