edit History
Roethke was born in Saginaw Michigan . His father, Otto Roethke, was a German immigrant, who owned a large local greenhouse . Much of Theodore's childhood was spent in this greenhouse, as reflected by the use of natural images in his poetry. The poet's adolescent years were jarred, however, by the death of his father from cancer in 1923 and his uncle's suicide. These both powerfully shaped Roethke's psychic and creative lives. He attended the University of Michigan and briefly attended law school before entering Harvard University , where he studied under the poet Robert Hillyer . He was then forced to abandon graduate study for economic reasons and became a professor of English. He taught at several universities, among them Lafayette College Pennsylvania State University and Bennington College citation needed In 1940, he was expelled from his position at Lafayette and returned to Michigan. Just prior to his return, he had an affair with established poet and critic

Theodore Roethke Introducción y Traducción Raúl Racedo A Theodore le encantaba subir al techo del invernadero del que era propietario Otto, su padre. Según los vecinos, el niño pasaba largas horas contemplando la naturaleza. Tal cual. Pero como en ésta vida no todo es contemplar la naturaleza, mientras crecía en Saginaw, Michigan, asistió al Hill High School donde (¡orgullo de papá Otto y mamá Helen Huebner !) un día dio un discurso que dejó patitiesa a la audiencia; mayormente a la del Junior Red Cross que publicó semejante speech en veintiséis lenguas diferentes. Con el antecedente señalado, lo que más interesó a la familia Roethke fue que el chico se dedicara a un oficio de alta rentabilidad : abogacía .Pocos oficios son tanto o más rentables que la abogacía. ¿Ejemplos? Sobran. Despechando tal interés , Theodore renunció a la carrera de leyes al finalizar el semestre y su familia lloró lágrimas de sangre por lo que pudo haber sido y no fue. Desde ése momento en adelante los bien intencionados huesos de Theodore recorrieron la Universidad de Michigan y luego el Harvard Graduate School.

7. In A Dark Time … The Eye Begins To See » Theodore Roethke
Theodore Roethke’s “In a Dark Time” seems even more powerful today than when I first read it in 1965. It stands as a masterpiece in itself but takes on
October 12, 2001
Never Too Many Problems
Long live the weeds that overwhelm
My narrow vegetable realm!
The bitter rock, the barren soil
That force the son of man to toil;
All things unholy, marred by curse,
The ugly of the universe.
The rough, the wicked, and the wild
That keep the spirit undefiled.
With these I match my little wit And earn the right to stand or sit, Hope, love, create, or drink and die: These shape the creature that is I. Theodore Roethke, Words for the Wind I would like to think that we can learn something even from events as horrendous as the attack on the World Trade Center. Events like this test our strength and question who we are. In doing so, we truly define who we are and what we believe in ways that we never can when dealing with the ordinary, everyday events of our life. However, forcing yourself to express your ideas in print to strangers is another step in truly understanding your feelings and coming to terms with them. Maybe that is why so many people are blogging now. They realize, as I have, that expressing their ideas publicly is the best way to discover who they are.

Theodore Roethke (1908-1963)
Contributing Editor: Janis Stout
Major Themes, Historical Perspectives, and Personal Issues
Personal Background : Roethke had extremely ambivalent feelings about his father, who was managing partner in a large greenhouse operation in Saginaw, Michigan. He also had problems related to alcohol addiction and bipolar disorder, which resulted in periods of hospitalization. All of these personal tensions are confronted in his poetry.
Significant Form, Style, or Artistic Conventions
"Frau Bauman, Frau Schmidt, and Frau Schwartze" The three "ancient ladies" preside over processes of growth (both vegetable and the poet's own) almost as personifications of natural forces, or even the three Fates. Their presence, like Mother Nature's, is somewhat ambiguous; there is a note of threat in their tickling of the child and in their night presence. The three women's vigor and authority should be noted, as well as their avoidance of limitation by sex-role stereotypes: clearly female (they wear skirts, they have a special association with the child), they also climb ladders and stand astride the steam-pipes providing heat in the greenhouse. "Root Cellar"

Summer 2001
Photo by Linda Robinson Walker Otto Roethke's galoshes on the back porch. Otto danced Ted around the kitchen, the son standing on his father's feet: The whiskey on your breath
Could make a small boy dizzy;
But I hung on like death:
Such waltzing was not easy. We romped until the pans
Slid from the kitchen shelf;
My mother's countenance
Could not unfrown itself The hand that held my wrist
Was battered on one knuckle;
At every step you missed
My right ear scraped a buckle. You beat time on my head With a palm caked hard by dirt, Then waltzed me off to bed Still clinging to your shirt. "My Papa's Waltz" By Linda Robinson Walker At the time of his death Theodore Roethke '29, '36 MA, '62 D Lit (Hon) had won about as many prizes as a poet could, rivaling or surpassing other American poets such as Robert Frost (who was 34 years older), William Carlos Williams Robert Lowell and E. E. Cummings Roethke's death at 55 in shocked his fellow poets into tributes that they might have toned down for a slower, later death. John Ciardi, for instance, in the Michigan Quarterly Review's 1967 collection of tributes, penned these lines: "Ted Roethke was a tearing man,/ a slam-bang wham-damn tantrum O/ from Saginaw in Michigan...a roaring man,/ a ring-tailed whing-ding yippee O./ He could outyell all Michigan/and half the Mississippi O."

O wing much to the mystics of the Anglo-Celtic tradition such as Blake, Yeats, and Auden, poet Theodore Roethke, exerted, in turn, a significant influence on artists of the 1940's and 1950's generations. Not only did a poet like Sylvia Plath find inspiration in Roethke's work, but a number of American composers, among them Samuel Barber and Ned Rorem , found the lyricism of his verse excellent material for song settings.
Born on May 25, 1908 in Michigan and educated there, he went on to Harvard before pursuing an academic career at various American universities. His first volume of verse, OPEN HOUSE (1941), initiated his hallmark use of plant imagery as a symbol for human flowering and decay. He followed this with autobiographical verse, THE LOST SON (1948) and PRAISE TO THE END! (1951), which showed him embracing the visionary style of Yeats. THE WAKING won the poet the Pulitzer Prize in 1953, while the Bollingen Prize-winning WORDS FOR THE WIND is probably his best known work. After his death in 1963 the remainder of his verse, letters, and essays were published posthumously and a COLLECTED EDITION of the poems appeared in 1975.
