Poetry Magnum Opus

Recommended Posts

Donald Hall has Died at 89 Although his poetry would not rank in my top 10 favorites, his book "How to Read a Poem" was a springboard for my reading,understanding and writing poetry. I learned so much from this book. Thank you Donald Hall, may you rest in peace. ~~Tink

Yes Judi, I did catch this article about it a few days ago. I don't know his work, but I have read things he has written about the craft itself (eg. interviews, "how to" stuff, prefaces to anthologies, etc.) and have found what he has said to be useful and inspiring.

When I learned this news, I read a bit about Donald Hall and came across a poem by his late wife, Jane Kenyon. I liked it very much. I'll make a topic in "A Poem I Read Today."
