Charles Norman (Russia, 1910 - 1996 Newport, R.I.),was a poet and the author of insightful biographies of E. E. Cummings, Ezra Pound and other literary figures. His biographies were especially valuable because of his own poetic sensibility and use of first-hand sources.
He was best known for literary biographies such as ''The Magic-Maker: E. E. Cummings'' (1958) and ''Ezra Pound'' (1960) and his several books of poetry.
