About Henri Coulette

Henri Coulette (November 17, 1927 – March 26, 1988) was an American poet and teacher. He published his first volume of poetry The War of the Secret Agents and Other Poems in 1965, which was greeted with acclaim and won the Lamont Poetry Prize. His second collection, The Family Goldschmitt, published in 1971, seems to have received little attention, and it has been reported that much of the print run was accidentally pulped. He did not publish another book during his life, but had been organizing a volume when he died.
Coulette was born in Los Angeles, California, and earned a bachelor's degree in 1952 from California State University, Los Angeles. He studied at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, after which he returned to California. He spent nearly his entire career as a faculty member at California State University, Los Angeles.
