Hecht was born in New York City to German Jewish parents. He was educated at various schools in the city - he was a classmate of Jack Kerouac at one point - but showed no great academic ability, something he would later refer to as "conspicuous." However, as a freshman English student at Bard College in New York he discovered the works of Stevens Auden Eliot , and Dylan Thomas . It was at this point that he decided he would become a poet. Hecht's parents were not happy at his plans and tried to discourage them; even getting family friend Ted Geisel , better known as Dr. Seuss, to attempt to dissuade him. In , upon completing his final year at Bard, Hecht was drafted into the 97th Infantry Division and was sent to the battlefields in Europe .

Anthony Hecht biographical notes SAUL AND DAVID It was a villainous spirit, snub-nosed, foul
Of breath, thick-taloned and malevolent,
That squatted within him wheresoever he went
And possessed the soul of Saul. There was no peace on pillow or on throne.
In dreams the toothless, dwarfed, and squinny-eyed
Started a joyful rumor that he had died
Unfriended and alone. The doctors were confounded. In his distress, he
Put aside arrogant ways and condescended
To seek among the flocks where they were tended
By the youngest son of Jesse, A shepherd boy, but goodly to look upon,
Unnoticed but God-favored, sturdy of limb As Michelangelo later imagined him, Comely even in his frown. Shall a mere shepherd provide the cure of kings? Heaven itself delights in ironies such As this, in which a boy's fingers would touch Pythagorean strings And by a modal artistry assemble The very Sons of Morning, the ranked and choired Heavens in sweet laudation of the Lord, And make Saul cease to tremble. from used by permission of Alfred A.

Anthony Hecht
My literary education began with nursery rhymes and Mother Goose, the fairly common way for those of my generation, as well as those going back to Victorian times. Hinx, minx, the old witch winks,
The fat begins to fry;
Nobody home but Jumping Joan,
Father, mother, and I. Stick, stock, stone dead, Blind man can't see; Every knave will have a slave, You or I must be he. What child would not be intrigued by such verse, filled as it is with admirable mystery: a witch, a curious person named "Jumping Joan," the mention of the unmentionable in the world of the real nursery, the dead, the blind, and slaves. Most of all, the frank inclusion of "me," as part of the drama. I was enchanted, and the more pleased to find that the grown-ups who read me these poems were as mystified as I by them. It would be many years before I would encounter: Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf

An eight page mimeo, with poems by Donald Hall ("The Funeral", "Jack and the Other Jack", "The Adults", "Marat's Death"), Anthony Hecht ("Drinking Song", Birdwatchers of America", "Jason", "The Vow"), and James Wright ("Bitterness Over the Crib of a Deaf Child", "A Complaint for George Doty in the Death House", "Paul", "The Cold Divinities"). Miraculously SIGNED by all three. Presumably published to coincide with the Miles Modern Poetry Week, May 1958, at Wayne State University. Hall's contribution not in Kelleher. Acidic pages splitting and chipping, a good copy in stapled folded sheets with one page detached. An item probably unknown to all but the most ardent Hall and Wright collectors, and quite likely unique signed.

    The Life of a Poet
    A Conversation with Anthony Hecht NEH Chairman Bruce Cole spoke recently with Anthony Hecht about the writing of poetry and the relationship between poetry and art. Hecht has published seven volumes of poetry, among them The Hard Hours , which won a Pulitzer Prize in 1968. He is chancellor emeritus of the Academy of American Poets. Bruce Cole: Let’s begin at the beginning. How did you start out to be a poet? Anthony Hecht: When I was a college freshman, I had fallen in love with poetrythe poetry of others, to be sure, not my own. When I came home for a holiday weekend and announced with foolish bravura to my parents that that’s what I wanted to do, their silence was more appalling than any kind of recrimination. My father was a businessman and I expected to be told how stupid this was as a mode of life. But he didn’t say anything. Nor did my mother. I knew immediately that this represented the absolute epitome of disapproval. The next time I came home they had called in allies. The allies were, of all people, Dr. Seuss, who was a close family friend, and his wifeTed Geisel and his wife Helen. Nothing leading was said at any point during the course of the dinner conversation, but after the dinner was over, Ted walked in to the living room with me and put his arm on my shoulders and said, “Tell me what it is that you think you want to do with your life.” I knew immediately that this was a setup, that my parents were in up to their eyeballs. I saw no way of seeking some devious way out of it, so I simply confessed that I wanted to be a poet. Ted said, “I think that’s a wonderful ambition. Let me tell you what I think you should do first. I think you should read
