Description

Mary Ellen Solt acquired her love of poetry as a student at Iowa State Teachers College (ISTC). She earned a B.A. in English in 1941 and a M.A. from the University of Iowa in 1948. In 1955, she moved to Indiana University, where she taught poetry and comparative literature, and published critical studies. She began writing concrete poetry in the early 1960s. Concrete poetry is experimental poetry that combines the structure and themes of the words, as well as visual symbols. Her work has been featured in museums and television.
