Author Biography
Corn, Alfred Dewitt (Author)
Alfred Dewitt Corn III was born on August 14, 1943, in Bainbridge, Georgia. He grew up in Valdosta, Georgia, earning a Bachelor's degree in French at Emory University and a Master's degree, also in French, at Columbia University. In 1967, Corn married Ann Jones, but they divorced in 1971. This divorce and his travels to France, Italy, and elsewhere influenced some of his later poetry.

Corn has been an associate editor for University Review, a staff writer at De Capo Press, Inc., a freelance writer, and a visiting lecturer and teacher at many universities. He is best known for his innovative, yet traditional poems that embody such themes as love, nature, and the loss of innocence. He has written more than 10 poetry books, including All Roads At Once (1976), Notes from a Child of Paradise (1984), and Autobiographies (1992). Corn has been awarded several prizes including the George Dillon Prize, Poetry, in 1975; the Lamont Poetry Prize in 1987, 1988, and 1989; and the John Masefield Poetry Prize in 1992.
