The daughter of Donald Hall confirms that the two-time poet laureate passed away Saturday.

Hall, who was eighty-nine, had been in hospice for some time, according to The Guardian.

Hall’s complete oeuvre spans poetry, drama, biographies, and memoirs, comprising over fifty books.

He was most celebrated for his poetry, which earned him the 2006 and 2007 U.S. poet laureate selection, a National Book Critics Circle prize, membership in the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and a National Medal of Arts.
