W. S. Merwin
W. S. Merwin is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry, for his collections The Carrier of Ladders and The Shadow of Sirius (Copper Canyon).
Merwin's luminous, ethereal voice gently interrogates mortality, and especially now, late in life, he sings lovingly to a timeless world...
Supportive & challenging workshops.

"Don Share's The Poems of Basil Bunting is... long-awaited on two separate counts: not only because a scholarly, critical, variorum edition of this major modernist poet has long been required, but also because this edition has for many years been imminent, a ghostly vessel forever breasting the horizon. Now it has come alongside... Well done, Faber. Well done, Don Share."
