4. Porkopolis - Best Loved Poems: James Dickey
James Dickey. Approaching Prayer. Dickey, James, (1923 — 1997), US poet and novelist, most widely known as the author of the novel and screenplay Deliverance.

James Dickey
Approaching Prayer
A moment tries to come in
Through the windows, when one must go
Beyond what there is in the room,
But it must come straight down.
Lord, it is time,
And I must get up and start
To circle through my father's empty house Looking for things to put on Or to strip myself of So that I can fall to my knees And produce a word I can't say Until all my reason is slain. Here is the gray sweater My father wore in the cold, The snapped threads growing all over it Like his gray body hair. The spurs of his gamecocks glimmer Also, in my light, dry hand. And here is the head of a boar I once helped to kill with two arrows: Two things of my father's Wild, Bible-reading life And my own best and stillest moment In a hog's head waiting for glory. All these I set up in the attic, The boar's head, gaffs, and the sweater On a chair, and gaze in the dark Up into the boar's painted gullet. Nothing. Perhaps I should feel more foolish, Even, than this.

His published early notebooks Striking In The Early Notebooks of james dickey, edited by Gordon Van Ness - although not begun until several years later
Photo by Rollie McKenna James Lafayette Dickey, III, destined to become nationally and internationally recognized as poet, novelist, essayist, and critic, was born in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, February 2, 1923. The third child of Maibelle Swift Dickey and Eugene Dickey, his birth occurred at Piedmont Hospital.
Thus, a third child and second son, James L. Dickey, III, was named after his grandfather (James Lafayette Dickey (29 September 1847 - 29 October 1910), and his uncle, James Lafayette Dickey, Jr. (13 September 1875 - 15 May 1968). A fourth child, another son, was named Thomas Swift Dickey (5 February 1925 - 8 December 1987).
Jim's poetry career began, as he related, when his letters to girls back home -"who I didn't want to forget me"- reached a stage of imaginative development that even the nineteen-year-old writing from the South Pacific could recognize. He began to read widely while in the South Pacific, asking his mother to send him volumes and volumes of poetry of both the classic poets and the contemporary poets. His published early notebooks - Striking In: The Early Notebooks of James Dickey
Dickey married Maxine Webster Syerson ( - 1976) 4 November 1948 in Nashville, Tennessee, where he attended Vanderbilt University on the G. I. Bill. In 1949, he received the B. A. in English with a minor in philosophy, graduating fourteenth in a class of 446, qualifying for Phi Beta Kappa. In 1950, he received the M. A. in English, and began a teaching career at Rice Institute in Houston, Texas. Dickey was recalled to duty in Korea as flight training instructor.

15. Online NewsHour: The Life Of James Dickey -- January 20, 1997
An interview with Stanley Plumly on the death of author james dickey.
January 20, 1997
TRANSCRIPT Author and Poet James Dickey died yesterday. ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: James Dickey may have been best known for his novel "Deliverance" from which a popular film was made, but he was, above all, a poet. An early collection of his work "Buckdancer’s Choice" won the 1966 National Book Award for Poetry. In all, he published more than 20 books, including first novels and criticism. Here to tell us more is Stanley Plumly, professor of English at the University of Maryland and a poet himself. Thanks for being with us. STANLEY PLUMLY, Poet: Thank you for having me. ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: Tell us something about James Dickey and how he became a poet. STANLEY PLUMLY: Well, Dickey, I think is a kind of a model for a lot of American writers of my generation and the generation before me. He started out ashe was a big man. He started out as an athlete, both in high school and in college. You had always a sensehe was a serious athleteyou had the sense about him that he was caged, and that he had something powerful in him he wanted to say. And I suppose as an athlete that was one way to articulate it. For a long time he was an advertising executive with the Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia. He was a Georgian and a deep Southerner, to the soul, and would write poems on his off moments and decided that that was the direction he wanted to go in. ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: He also flew bombing missions in World War II and in Korea. There’s a sense of danger and death always in hisoften in his poetry, isn’t there?

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback James (Lafayette) Dickey (1923-1997) American poet, novelist, critic, athlete, and hunter with bow and arrow, best-known from his novel DELIVERANCE (1970), an adventure story of four businessmen canoeing down a dangerous river in rural Georgia. The trip becomes a nightmare of survival. Dickey's dominant medium was poetry, not bestselling fiction. He maintained that poetry should be concerned with basic emotions. "The poet is not trying the tell the truth. He's trying to make it." In his interest in hunting and the outdoors, Dickey came close to Ernest Hemingway. 'Funny thing about up younder,' he said. 'The whole thing's different. I mean the whole way of taking life and the terms you take it on.'
'What should I know about that?' I said.
'The trouble is,' he said, 'that you not only don't know anything about it, you don't want to know anything about it.'
'Why should I?'
'Because, for the Lord's sake, there may be something important in the hills. Do you know that?'

(from Deliverance James Dickey was born in Atlanta, Georgia. In high school and at Clemson College Dickey played football and gave promise of an athletic career. In 1942 he interrupted his education and joined the air force. Dickey served as a radio intercept officer; the pilot that he frequently rode with was Earl E. Bradley. During this period Dickey started to read poetry. He claimed that he "eased into poetry" during an artillery attack in the South Pacific. Dickey continued to study literature, earning his M.A. degree from Vanderbilt University in 1950. But academic career did not attract him. When the Korean War broke out, Dickey served as a training officer in the Air Force. After the war he worked as a teacher and from 1956 to 1959 he was as an advertising copy writer for McCann-Erickson in New York.

Pursuit from Under
by James Dickey
Often, in these blue meadows,
I hear what passes for the bark of seals And on August week ends the cold of a personal ice age
Comes up through my bare feet
Which are trying to walk like a boy's again
So that nothing on earth can have changed
On the ground where I was raised. The dark grass here is like
The pads of mukluks going on and on Because I once burned kerosene to read
Myself near the North Pole
In the journal of Arctic explorers
Found, years after death, preserved
In a tent, part of whose canvas they had eaten Before the last entry.

American Poetry Since 1945: Authors: James Dickey (1923- )
Index James Dickey, a novelist and essayist as well as poet, is a native of Georgia. By his own reflection, he believes that the major theme in his work is the continuity that exists or must exist between the self and the world. Much of his writing is rooted in nature rivers and mountains, weather patterns, and the perils lurking within. In the late 1960s, Dickey began working on a novel, Deliverance , about the dark side of male bonding, which, when published and later filmed, increased his renown. His recent collections of verse deal with such varied themes as the landscape of the South ( Jericho: The South Beheld , 1974) and the influence of the Bible on his life ( God's Images , 1977). Dickey is often concerned with effort: "Outdoing, desperately / Outdoing what is required." Index
