Keith Waldrop: Award-Winning Poet

From a New York Times obit by Neil Genzlinger headlined “Keith Waldrop, Professor and Award-Winning Poet, Dies at 90″:

Keith Waldrop, whose first poetry collection was a finalist for a National Book Award in 1969 and who won the award 40 years later with his “Transcendental Studies: A Trilogy,” has died.

Professor Waldrop was far more than a poet. He was a well-regarded translator of French poetry and prose, was an artist whose collages were exhibited in solo and group shows, and ran a small press with his wife, the poet Rosmarie Waldrop.
