Conrad Aiken was Born 5 August 1889 and Died 17 August 1973 (aged 84).
At a very young age, his father killed his mother shortly after his father also committed suicide, the tragedy impacted Aiken’s development profoundly. He graduated Harvard in 1912, the same period as T. S. Eliot and E. E. Cummings. Aiken’s poetry reflects an intense influence by Freud and Edgar Allen Poe. His poetry shows a keen interest in Psychoanalysis and is a must read if you like deep identity searching poetry.
