About this product
- DescriptionPulitzer Prize-winning poet Anthony Hecht (1923-2004) was kwn t only for his masterful control of form and language but also for his wit and humor. With the help of Helen Hecht, the poet's widow, Jonathan F. S. Post combed through more than 4,000 letters to produce an intimate look into the poet's mind and art across a lifetime. The letters range from Hecht's early days at summer camp to college at Bard, to the front lines of World War II, to travels abroad in France and Italy, to marriage, and to fame as a poet and critic. Along the way, Hecht corresponded with well-kwn poets such as John Hollander, James Merrill, Anne Sexton, and Richard Wilbur. Those interested in the lives of contemporary poets will read these highly personal letters with delight and surprise.
