(Poets and Poetry in America)

The literary reputation that John Peale Bishop retains is connected almost solely to his work as a poet, but he also was involved in journalism as an editor for Vanity Fair (1922), and he wrote for that magazine in the 1920’s. He produced a volume of short stories, Many Thousands Gone, in 1931 and a novel, Act of Darkness, in 1935.
