Bradbury, who has been dubbed "the World's
Greatest Literary Writer." In the literary field,
however, he is also emerging as an equally gifted
poet, and it is in this capacity that he will speak at
CMC. He is the second in the Athenaeum's
American poets series.
Mr. Bradbury has published 23 books-novels and
collections of stories, poems, and plays. His books
include The Martian Chronicles (1950), Fahrenheit 451 (1953), The
Golden Apples of the Sun and Other Stories (1953), and Long after Midnight (1976). He
has written screenplays for It Came from Outer Space (1953),
The Picasso Summer (1957), I Sing the Body Electric (1969), and
Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983).
In 1964 Mr. Bradbury founded the Pandemonium
Theater, which has produced many of his plays, including Falling Upward (1988), a comedy about working in
Ireland, and for John Huston on the screenplay of Moby-Dick (1956).
