In Honour of Philip Levine, 1928-2015

Philip_Levine-2We were deeply saddened by the loss of Philip Levine on February 14, 2015. As Marilyn Hacker wrote, on the occasion of his receiving the 2013 Wallace Stevens Award, Levine’s “is a poetry in which the indissoluble connection between individual narrative—autobiographical, familial, or fictional—and the larger construct we call ‘history’ is made manifest.” In remembrance of him, take a look at the Academy of American Poets’ special collection of poems, audio clips, photographs, and essays celebrating his life and work.
