Feb 21
English-US poet, dramatist, editor. He wrote passionately about social problems and post-WW I anxiety; won Pulitzer for verse "Age of Anxiety," 1948.
This great society is going smash;
They cannot fool us with how fast they go,
How much they cost each other and the gods!
A culture is no better than its woods.

Those who will not reason, perish in the act. Those who will not act, perish for that reason.
Thousands have lived without love, not one without water.
Speechless Evil
Borrowed the language of Good
And reduced it to noise.
The words of a dead man
Are modified in the guts of the living.
