Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Arthur Crew Inman (1895-1963) was a reclusive and unsuccessful American poet whose 17-million word diary, extending from 1919 to 1963, is one of the longest English language diaries on record. Inman was born in 1895 in Atlanta to one of the city's wealthiest families. His father Samuel Martin Inman owned part of the Atlanta Constitution but derived his wealth from cotton trade and manufacturing. He left Atlanta to attend the Haverford School and then Haverford College leaving college after 2 years because of a nervous breakdown, and he never returned to the South after 1915. He married Evelyn Yates in 1923. Inman published several volumes of undistinguished poetry. A critic has described Inman as "a mediocre talent, wholly lacking in the sophisticated literary and philosophical education of the Ransom generation." In 1928 he edited and published Soldier of the South: General Pickett's War Letters to his Wife.show more
