After Dickey spent five and a half years juggling office responsibilities while submitting poetry to little  magazines, he published two collections, Into the Stone and Other Poems (1960) and Drowning with  Others (1962). A Guggenheim Fellowship temporarily placed him in Europe in 1961 to compose and  study language while he wrote Helmets (1964), a collection of war poems. In 1963, he returned to the  classroom as writer-in-residence at Reed College, San Fernando Valley State University, and  George Washington University while completing Interpreter's House (1963) and Two Poems of the  Air (1964).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
