Between Loneliness and Solitude

June 26, 2018

This week, the prolific poet and critic, Donald Hall passed away at 89. He was Poet Laureate of the U.S. and received the National Medal of Arts from President Obama. Hall was married to another lauded poet, Jane Kenyon until her untimely death from leukemia. More than 20 years after his wife’s passing, Hall wrote an essay in The New Yorker about solitude, love and mourning. Don’t miss it.

Heavy Lifting

June 25, 2018
