Dorothy Parker

National Poetry Month Spotlight – Dorothy Parker

Dorothy Parker had a great sense of dark humor that combined her depressive temperament and her brilliant intelligence. She suffered tremendously from depression, addiction and even a suicide attempt. Often, artists and writers are pained by their emotions but this may also be the well where they go for inspiration, so it is tragic to know that Parker and so many other artists experienced so much turmoil and chaos.
