Theodore Roethke was born May 25, 1908, in Saginaw, Michigan. From 1925 to 1929, he attended the University of Michigan where he drank heavily, but still managed to graduate magna cum laude. When the Great Depression came, Roethke took any job he could find and ended up teaching English at Lafayette College and Michigan State College. He had his first occurrence of mental illness while teaching and was then diagnosed with manic depression. During these times of depression, Roethke would look inside himself and use what he found in his poems. In 1941, Roethke came out with his first volume of verse, Open House, in which the material was based heavily on himself. After a second breakdown in 1945, he then wrote a second volume of poems called The Lost Son and Other Poems, which was also well-received. Among his many honors, Roethke won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1954. Words for the Wind was written in 1957 and won the Bollingen Prize, National Book Award, Edna St. Vincent Millay Prize, Longview Foundation Award, and finally the Pacific Northwest Writers Award. Theodore Roethke died of a heart attack in 1963. Sixty-one poems that he had written were published after his death in The Far Field (1964) which won the National Book Award.
