Dorothy Parker was born in 1893 in New Jersey, and grew up in New York City. She had a difficult childhood, losing most of her immediate family, including her uncle who went down on the Titanic. She wrote her first poem for Vanity Fair in 1914 and eventually became an editor of Vogue Magazine. She continued to write successfully for Vanity Fair as a drama critic, and other newspapers and magazines. In 1926 she started her first collection of poetry included in this book, "Enough Rope." She married and became a writer for MGM with her husband, and wrote for "A Star is Born" in 1937. Included in this book besides "Enough Rope," is also "Sunset Gun," "Death and Taxes," and many other Poems. This is a small book, but it is jam-packed with a long list of Dorothy Parker's poems.
