About meNovember 9, 1928 – October 4, 1974

Anne Sexton was an American poet, known for her highly personal, confessional verse. She won the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1967 for her book Live or Die. Themes of her poetry include her long battle against depression and mania, suicidal tendencies, and various intimate details from her private life, including her relationships with her husband and children.

About my libraryAnne Sexton’s personal library is housed in the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin.

Before her suicide at age 45, Anne Sexton provided explicit instructions to her daughter Linda Gray Sexton regarding the disposition of her papers, manuscripts, correspondence and personal library, which were to be placed as a whole in a "worthy University library". The decision as to the specific books which were to be included in the personal library was made by Linda Gray Sexton, who also donated a handful of selected titles published after her mother's death but which she felt would be appropriate.
