|Personal Fact of Elizabeth Bishop|
Elizabeth Bishop was an American poet and short story writer known for her vividly descriptive body of works, which were often very witty. A much acclaimed poet, she had once served as the Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress. Though her writing is known for its wittiness and humor, the poet herself had a very difficult beginning in life. She was effectively orphaned at the age of five, when her widowed mother had to be institutionalized for mental instability.
Thereafter, she was raised first by her maternal grandparents in Nova Scotia, then by her paternal grandparents in Worcester, and finally by an aunt in Cliftondale. Physically, she was not very strong and suffered from asthma from her early childhood and therefore had little formal education until her freshman year. In spite of these, she watched her surroundings carefully and kept them in her memory.
She was not a prolific writer, having produced only five slim volumes of works in thirty-five years; yet she had earned a large number of awards including the prestigious Pulitzer Prize. In addition to her poems and short stories, she is also known for her travel book called Brazil and translation works such as The Diary of Helena Morley and An Anthology of Twentieth-Century Brazilian Poetry.
