Deer Among Cattle

James Dickey

James Dickey was a native of Georgia. He served in World War II, and afterwards spent a number of years writing advertising copy. After 1969 he became a full-time writer and teacher. During the 1980s he published three volumes of poetry. Usually his poems are narratives which touch on violence and tragedy. "The Performance," for example, demonstrates, on the one hand, the violence that characterizes Dickey’s well-received novel Deliverance (1970), and on the other, the courageousness of a man insisting on his individuality and rights even against the greatest odds. One of his late novels was To the White Sea, published in 1993.
