About George Oppen
GEORGE OPPEN (1908-1984) was born in New Rochelle, New York. Often associated with the Objectivists, Oppen abandoned poetry in the 1930s for political activism, and later moved to Mexico to avoid the House Un-American Activities Committee. He returned to poetry-and to the United States-in 1958 and received a Pulitzer Prize for his work in 1969.
