« Poetry Reading by W. D. Snodgrass, October 2008, Syracuse, NY. | Main | "The Course of a Particular" [by Wallace Stevens] »

January 13, 2009


Sad news. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

There will never be another voice like De Snodgrass. There is a black hole in the universe the next centuries will have to struggle to fill.I loved the man and his work. His wife Kathy has made us all better than we were. She inherits all our love.

Oh, this is very sad. He was a fine poet and a kind man. Sympathies.

Very sad. Dee and his wife Kathy came to Pittsburgh to do a reading for us a few years ago. He not only gave a fantastic reading but the next day delivered a talk on Whitman's Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking, which so moved my sometimes very sceptical literature colleagues that they asked me to have him come back every year to talk about poetry. Sadly, we never did. His enthusiasm and sanity will be solely missed. My deepest sympathies to Kathy and the family.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
