On Elizabeth Bishop with Megan Marshall

In Elizabeth Bishop: A Miracle for Breakfast, Megan Marshall, who studied with Bishop in the 1970s, alternates chapters of traditional biography with brief passages of memoir, illustrating how poetry and biography, subject and biographer, are entwined.

Marshall, who won a Pulitzer Prize for Margaret Fuller: An American Life, “excels at creating a sense of intimacy — with both her subjects and her reader,” wrote Judith Thurman.
