The 1968 Harvard Lampoon Parody of LIFE ... and James Dickey

It's quite a distinction to be parodied this way. Gives you an idea just how iconic James Dickey had become by the late 1960s. And this was before Deliverance.  The parody of "Falling" is especially funny. We've posted extra-large photos for easier reading.

New James Dickey Author Page on

We are happy to report that the James Dickey page is shaping up nicely. Both “The Complete Poems” and “Death, and the Day’s Light” are now displayed prominently.

The biography is an abbreviated version of one on the site of The Poetry Foundation and emphasizes the poetry over the novels. There is a blog feed and a Twitter feed, and there will be several photographs, changed frequently.

Suggestions welcome, but in the meantime please spread the word on Tumblr, Twitter, FB, etc.!

Also, interesting to note the Amazon page already is number two when you search James Dickey on Google (without quotes), right after the Wikipedia entry. (For some reason when the name is in quotes it’s not coming up on the first page of the search. Go figure.)

Here’s the link:
