Robert Hass is a poet of great eloquence, clarity and force, whose work is rooted in the landscapes of his native Northern California. Widely read and much honored, he has brought the kind of energy in his poetry to his work as an essayist, translator and activist on behalf of poetry, literacy and the environment.
A two-time MacArthur Genius Fellow, Hass served as Poet Laureate of the United States from 1995-1997 and as a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets from 2001-2007. His books of poetry include “The Apple Trees at Olema: New and Selected Poems” (Ecco Press, 2010); “Time and Materials” (2007), which won the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize; “Sun Under Wood” (Ecco Press, 1996), which won the National Book Critics Circle Award; “Human Wishes” (Ecco Press, 1989); “Praise” (Ecco Press, 1979), which won the William Carlos Williams Award;” and “Field Guide” (Yale University Press, 1973). Hass has also written many books of essays and has co-translated many of Polish-American poet Czesław Miłosz’s works with the author.
