Poet Donald Hall on Memorials

Cover Story

Saturday, September 07, 2002

Kurt Andersen and poet Donald Hall look at how artists create memorials, how we connect to them, and how long we want them to last. 

Hall has published fifteen books of poetry, most recently The Painted Bed and Without: Poems, which was published on the third anniversary of his wife and fellow poet Jane Kenyon's death from leukemia. He has won the National book Critics Circle Award, two Guggenheim fellowships, and the Ruth Lilly Prize for poetry. From 1984 to 1989 he served as Poet Laureate of New Hampshire.
