Maxine Kumin (née Winokur) was born to a Reform Jewish family in Germantown, Pennsylvania. She attended Catholic and public schools before earning a BA and MA from Radcliffe College and married Victor Kumin in 1946 while still a student, and she would have two daughters and a son. On her early writing days, Kumin remarked, began writing poetry in the Dark Ages of the '50s with very little sense of who I was-a wife, a daughter, a mother, a college instructor, a swimmer, a horse lover, a hermit. She was able to make a successful recovery, however, and her book Inside the Halo and Beyond: The Anatomy of a Recovery (1999) described her convalescence.
