Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979) is #LiteraryLady number 84 of 100. She was a poet and short-story writer. She refused to participate in all women anthologies, and didn't like being identified as a "lesbian poet" or "female poet." This, along with her resistance to participating in feminist movements had some thinking she had internalized misogyny, but she did actually call herself a feminist in a Paris Review interview, clarifying that she just wanted to be judged solely on her writing rather than her gender or sexual orientation.
She acted as a consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress from 1949 to 1950, won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1956, received the National Book Award in 1970, and won the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in 1976.
