12/19/2011; 51 minutes

Born in San Francisco, Robert Haas is a California poet but his poetry, translations, and essays reveal an intimacy that transcends the borders of states and nations. With his direct clarity and promotion of literacy in "places where poets don't go," he served two years as U. S. Poet Laureate (1995-97). His numerous books include "Sun Under Wood," "Time and Materials," and "The Apple Trees at Olema: New and Selected Poems." Hass's numerous accolades include the MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship, two National Book Critics' Circle Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize. Hass has translated many of the works of Nobel Prize-winning Polish poet, Czeslaw Milosz. (#22614)
