James Merrill

James Ingram Merrill was an American poet whose awards include the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for 'Divine Comedies' . His poetry falls into two distinct bodies of work: the polished and formalist lyric poetry of his early career, and the epic narrative of occult communication with spirits and angels, titled 'The Changing Light at Sandover' , which dominated his later career. Although most of his published work was poetry, he also wrote essays, fiction, and plays. Wikipedia*
