Biographical and Historical Notes

Larry Eigner (1927-1996

American poet Larry Eigner (Laurence Joel Eigner) was born August 7, 1927, in Lynn, Massachusetts. Although an injury at birth left Eigner palsied, the poet and writer spent his life describing the world around him, first from his glassed-in porch in a small town in Massachusetts and later from his home in Berkeley, California. Although most of his published work is poetry, he has also written a play, short stories, and prose.
