Who was Elisabeth Bishop?
Elizabeth Bishop is an American poetess. She never strove to reveal details of her private life by means of her works. She was painful and nervous, was enthralled “with art of a separation”, she was never distinguished by voluminosity, but the biography of Elizabeth Bishop is filled with her mental and geographical journeys which up to now are perturbing the most experienced reader.
