Merry Christmas!

James Merrill (1926-95) grew up in the lap of luxury, the son of Charles Merrill, the founder of Merrill, Lynch.

He went to all the right schools and taught at others, including the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

And he grew to become one of the most respected poets of the last half of the 20th century, complex, sometimes formalist, sometimes not, a seer and a realist.
