“A Miracle for Breakfast” is a sestina by the Pulitzer Prize-winning American poet Elizabeth Bishop. First published in “Poetry” magazine in 1937 and then in Bishop’s first book of poetry, “North & South” (1946), the poem reflects Bishop’s keen eye as she provides a nuanced record of a puzzling breakfast. The poem also showcases Bishop’s engagement with complex poetic forms. She uses a sestina to communicate the peculiar breakfast, so the end words in Stanza 1 become the end words—albeit in a different order—in the following stanzas. Although Bishop only published around 100 poems while she was alive, her canon is dynamic. Some of her well-known poems, like the villanelle “One Art” (1976), use traditional poetic forms. Other poems, like “The Fish” (1946), embrace free verse and don’t follow any predetermined patterns or rules. Like most of her poems, “A Miracle for Breakfast” conveys the message that everyday life contains moments of singular wonder. The poem represents her sharp observations and elusive speakers. As the distinguished Irish writer Colm Tóibín says in his book-length study on Bishop, “On Elizabeth Bishop” (Princeton University Press, 2015), “It was essential for Elizabeth Bishop that words in a statement be precise and exact”. Famous for her acute poetry, Bishop also published essays, stories, translations, and a travel book about Brazil, where she lived for many years. Poet Biography Elizabeth Bishop was born February 8, 1911, in Worcester, Massachusetts. Her dad, William, came from a prominent family; his dad was a wealthy contractor and supervised the construction of notable buildings like the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Unfortunately, William, who suffered from Bright’s disease, died when Elizabeth was eight months old. Her mom, Gertrude, was an ice skater and trained to be a nurse. She suffered from mental health issues and was committed to Boston’s Deaconess Hospital for treatment, where she jumped out a second-story window. It then fell on family members to raise Bishop, who did not have a pleasant childhood. She dealt with asthma and other ailments, but she enjoyed reading and school. In 1930, Bishop enrolled in the prestigious women’s college Vassar where she, along with other students—including the famous novelist Mary McCarthy—started a literary journal, “Con Spirito”. While at Vassar, Bishop’s mom died, and she met the established American Modernist poet Marianne Moore. A critical influence on Bishop, Moore helped Bishop publish and gain crucial recognition. After graduating from Vassar, Bishop moved to Greenwich Village and New York City. During this time, Bishop traveled with her friend and romantic partner Louise Crane. In 1937, Bishop made her debut in the influential “Poetry” magazine with “A Miracle for Breakfast”. Later, Bishop became close friends with the confessional poet Robert Lowell. Although Bishop had some income due to her wealthy family, Lowell helped Bishop supplement her income by getting her grants and teaching appointments. Bishop and Lowell had much in common. They struggled with alcoholism, mental illness, and stormy love lives. In her biography of Bishop, named after the poem, “A Miracle for Breakfast” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017), Megan Marshall writes, “Elizabeth was never one to join the cause of sexual liberation or to identify herself publicly as a lesbian”. Yet Elizabeth was attracted to women and maintained loving, romantic relationships with women throughout her life. In 1946, Bishop published her first book “North & South”. From 1949 to 1950, Bishop was the Consultant in Poetry to the Library of Congress—an august position now known as Poet Laureate. The post required Bishop to live in Washington, DC, which she didn’t enjoy; Bishop preferred travelling. She visited Mexico, Africa, and Europe. In 1951, she traveled to Brazil. After a debilitating allergic reaction to cashew, Maria Carlota Costellat de Macedo Soares (Lota), a member of an influential Brazilian family, helped Bishop recover. The two women fell in love, and they lived together in Brazil for almost 15 years. In 1955, Bishop published “Poems”. The book combined her first book, “North & South” , which was out of print at the time, and her new poems, collected as “A Cold Spring”. The book won the Pulitzer Prize in 1956. In 1961, Lota started to oversee the construction of a large public park and entertainment project in Rio. Lota’s new job and the political turmoil in Brazil strained their relationship. In 1965, Bishop published her third collection of poetry, “Questions of Travel”. A year later, Bishop took a teaching position at the University of Washington and began a romantic relationship with a 23-year-old pregnant, married woman, Roxanne Cumming. Meanwhile, the demands of the public project put Lota’s physical and mental health in jeopardy. In 1967, Lota visited Bishop in New York, where she died after overdosing on Valium. Bishop and Cumming continued their relationship, living in San Francisco and Brazil. In 1969, Bishop published “The Complete Poems” , which won the National Book Award in 1970.
