Biography

Philip Booth was born on October 8, 1925 in Hanover, NH. After serving in the Air Force during World War II, Booth graduated from Dartmouth College, where he studied under Robert Frost, in 1948. After obtaining an M.A. degree from Columbia University in 1949, Booth returned to Dartmouth and joined the faculty of the English department. In 1954, he left Dartmouth first for Bowdoin College, then Wellesley College and finally Syracuse University, where he was one of the founders of the graduate program in creative writing. Booth published his first book of poems "Letter from a Distant Land" in 1957. Over the course of his career, Booth published nine other collections of poetry, including "Lifelines: Selected Poems, 1950-1999" (1999), which received the 2001 Poets' Prize, "Pairs" (1994), "Relations: Selected Poems 1950-1985" (1986), "Available Light "(1976), and "Weathers and Edges" (1966). Booth's honors include Guggenheim, Rockefeller, and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships, and the Theodore Roethke Prize. In 1983, he was elected a Fellow of The Academy of American Poets. Booth died on July 2, 2007.
