Former US poet laureate Donald Hall has published scores of poems, a dozen children’s books, two dozen works of prose, and a few plays. He remains a major American poet, even if he has turned his attention away from the form: In 2008, after six decades of poems, he began work on what he considers his final collection, published in 2011 as “The Back Chamber.” Since then, he has focused on writing essays. He is at work on a collection to be published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Hall lives and writes at Eagle Pond Farm in New Hampshire, a place he has made familiar through numerous books.
