Product Description


One-time Poet Laureate of the United States, winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Bollingen Prize and the Frost Medal (among many other awards), Anthony Hecht is one of America's most celebrated senior poets, and in this, the longest interview he has ever given, he talks in detail about his New York upbringing, his scarring experiences as a soldier in WWII, his days as a student of John Crowe Ransom's, his own career as a teacher, and his friendships with W.H. Auden, Hannah Arendt, Saul Bellow, Sylvia Plath, Ted Hughes, Anne Sexton, James Wright, and others. He also talks at length about his work, answering with great care questions about poems from all of his collections, up to and including Flight Among the Tombs. As well as the 45,000 word interview, this book comes complete with a career sketch, a comprehensive bibliography (listing primary and secondary material), and several pages of quotations from critics and reviewers, spanning the whole of Hecht's career up to 1999).
