American playwright and novelist who wrote "Look Homeward, Angel," 1929, "The Web and The Rock," 1939 and "You Can't Go Home Again," 1940. Educated at the University of No. Carolina and graduating with an M.A. from Harvard, 1922, he taught English at the New York University from 1924-1930. Wolfe's first novel, "Look Homeward, Angel" was a great success, leading to his writing full time in America and Europe. Although he was criticized for his lack of discipline, he wrote both eloquently and forcefully in powerful prose.
In 1938 he suffered from pneumonia. This produced a recurrence of tuberculosis of the lungs, which led to fatal tuberculosis of the brain. He died after brain surgery on 9/15/1938, Baltimore, MD. at the John Hopkins Hospital.
