American poet Edward Dorn was born April 2, 1929 in Villa Grove, Illinois. Edward Dorn attended Black Mountain College in North Carolina for several years, receiving a BA in 1954. Although poets associated with the college have often been grouped together as the "Black Mountain poets," Dorn has suggested: "I think I'm rightly associated with the Black Mountain 'school,' not because of the way I write, but because I was there." Dorn's most influential and highly acclaimed work was the four-volume epic poem, Slinger, which evolved from his earlier poem, "An Idle Visitation." Edward Dorn died December 10, 1999 in Denver, Colorado.
