James Baker Hall, 2001 Poet Laureate


James Baker Hall

“James Baker Hall has consistently pursued in his poetry a trajectory that is deeply authentic. It has produced writing of daring and delicacy, over a period long enough to make it plain that this is not a momentary brilliance but a sustained vision.... This new collection displays an intimate authority and mystery of tone that are the fulfillment of a genuine gift and uncompromising devotion to it.”

—W.S. Merwin

James Baker Hall is the author of five books of poetry. The New Yorker, the Paris Review, American Poetry Review, and The Kenyon Review are among the many magazines to have published his work. He has received a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship in poetry writing and has won both Pushcart and O. Henry prizes. He lives in the Kentucky countryside with his wife, fiction writer Mary Ann Taylor-Hall, and teaches at the University of Kentucky.
