Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Anne Stevenson (born January 3, 1933) is an American-British poet and writer . Stevenson's parents Louise Destler Stevenson and C.L. Stevenson met at a Cincinnati High School. They were living in Cambridge, England, where Charles was studying philosophy under I. A. Richards and Wittgenstein, when their first daughter, Anne was born. The family returned to America when Anne was six months old, moving to New Haven, her father going on to teach at universities including Harvard and Yale. She was raised in New England, the eldest of three daughters and was educated in Ann Arbor, Michigan, where her father was a professor of philosophy. Her father was a devoted pianist and lover of poetry and her mother wrote fiction and was a talented storyteller. Stevenson learnt piano and cello and she assumed until she was 19 that she would be a professional musician. She studied music and languages, at the University of Michigan and here decided that she would be a writer. Obtaining her bachelors degree in 1954 and graduating with honours, she returned to the UK where she has lived most of her life.show more
