A Memorial for Stanley Kunitz
"The poem comes in the form of a blessing -'like rapture breaking on the mind,'" wrote the late Stanley Kunitz in the introduction to Passing Through. When Kunitz died May 14, 2006, at 100, he left a legacy of creative endurance and an impassioned commitment to the preservation of poetry. The life and work of Poets House co-founder Stanley Kunitz will be celebrated through poems and stories, photographs, and rare archival recordings.
