Randall Jarrell, Washington, DC, 1957. Photo by Ted Russell.


I was speaking with former LIFE photographer Ted Russell, whose extraordinary photographs of Bob Dylan from 1961 to 1964 were recently exhibited at the Bob Dylan Center in Tulsa, OK, when he told me about his photographs of Randall Jarrell. Randall Jarrell was the 11th Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress—a position that now bears the title Poet Laureate of the United States. It is with great pleasure I share Ted Russell’s extraordinary portrait of the great American poet.

Ted Russell’s photographs are available through Govinda Gallery.
