In his day, he was considered one of the stars of the up-and-coming literary scene. Today his prose seems badly dated and much of the verse and drama feels preachy and prolix. But a dozen or so of his poems - like "Ars Poetica" and "You, Andrew Marvell" remain among the splendors of 20th-century American literature. Few poets of his generation equaled that legacy.
