Two-time poet laureate Donald Hall is still gifting the world with his words.
Hall passed away in June, but not before filmmaker Paul Szynol took footage of him discussing his life’s work.
Szynol’s documentary, Quiet Hours, premiered last month; you can watch it below or read about it on The Atlantic.
Hall, who died at the age of eighty-nine, produced poetry, drama, biographies, and memoirs.
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.
