strand

We at the English department mourn the passing of our friend Mark Strand, who taught with us for thirteen years. Strand was a highly influential poet, who served as U.S. poet laureate before winning a Pulitzer in 1999 for his work, "Blizzard of One," a gold medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and a National Book Award nomination this fall for "Collected Poems."
