A Woman of Verse [US]:
A short stint as a copywriter at an advertising agency was quickly followed by a job as poetry editor at Scholastic, and then she became poetry editor of Ladies' Home Journal, based at the time in Philadelphia. From 1948 to 1962 she published some 900 poems by authors like Maxine Kumin, Randall Jarrell, W.H. Auden, John Updike, Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Marianne Moore. While much of what she published is not considered the best work of those poets, she tended to select their most accessible, uplifting poems and turned many of the top poets of her day into household names. She also published 70 of her own poems. [...]

In 1962, the magazine was sold and soon stopped publishing poetry. At age 40, Elizabeth Hoffman found that her career was over. There was no other suitable employment near home in Swarthmore, Pa., where Daniel was a Swarthmore English professor. So while Daniel published two dozen books of poetry and criticism during their 57-year marriage, Elizabeth raised their two children, entertained visiting writers, kept a summer house, gardened and traveled, including a trip with Daniel to Dublin, where she had tea with Mrs. Yeats and discussed linens.
