Donald Hall

Donald Hall is not only one of America’s greatest living poets and our former national Poet Laureate, but also among our most charming personal essayists. Hall approaches writing as he approaches life – with simplicity, affection, and a wry wit. He distills the human experience with a sense of humor that readers will return to again and again, each time learning something new. His work glows with the affection he holds for the land, the people, and the customs of rural New England, and especially for the small, New Hampshire dairy farm near Ragged Mountain he visited every summer as a child.
