The Spiritual Journey in the Poetry of Theodore Roethke

The Spiritual Journey in the Poetry of Theodore Roethke

Date: August 1971
Creator: Neiman, Marilyn M.
Description: If any interpretation of Theodore Roethke's poetry is to be meaningful, it must be made in light of his life. The sense of psychological guilt and spiritual alienation that began in childhood after his father's death was intensified in early adulthood by his struggles with periodic insanity. Consequently, by the time he reached middle age, Theodore Roethke was embroiled in an internal conflict that had been developing over a number of years, and the ordering of this inner chaos became the primary goal in his life, a goal which he sought through the introspection within his poetry.
