2015 Kunitz thoughts

This important and unique book is an amazingly beautiful appreciation of Stanley Kunitz’s work and life in poetry and prose by those poets closest to him in 2002. Some of those poets still living have added their 2015 poetry and thoughts about him; other poets, some who never knew the man, have contributed poems informed by his poetry and life.

Poets include Stephen Berg, Robert Bly, Lucie Brock-Broido, Lucille Clifton, Tory Dent, Forrest Gander, Louise Glück, Seamus Heaney, Galway Kinnell, Kenneth Koch, Yusef Komunyakaa, Robert Lowell, W.S. Merwin, Stanley Moss, Paul Muldoon, Mary Oliver, Mark Rudman, Gerald Stern, Richard Wilbur, and young poets.

STANLEY KUNITZ (1905–2006) won all the prizes, and he was twice appointed Poet Laureate.
