Theodore Huebner Roethke (b. May 25, 1908, Saginaw, Michigan – d. August 1, 1963, Bainbridge Island, Washington).

"At his death in 1963, Theodore Roethke left behind 277 spiral notebooks full of miscellany of fragments of poetry, aphorisms, jokes, journal entries, random phrases, bits of dialogue, commentary, whole poems - notebooks in which he wrote most frequently from 1943 until his death, letting his mind rove freely, mulling over and taking soundings of evey syllable."
