Personal Quote:

[from a letter to Norman Mailer, 1953] I think I'm arriving at a point which, more and more, I'm conscious of mannerisms and therefore tend to avoid them and go instead more directly to to the point. It's a hell of a hard process, but I take to it more instinctively than the other way around: the brawny method, like a big guy bellowing his way through a crowd.

Trivia:

He was awarded the American National Medal of the Arts in 1993 by the National Endowment of the Arts in Washington D.C. See more »
