Robert Creeley (1926-2005) 

Hello, I just learned the devastating news that Bob Creeley has died, of pneumonia, in Marfa Texas. I don't know any details yet other than that. His voice can be heartbreaking and is unforgettable.

Here is the Creeley PennSound link:

A review of Robert Creeley's If I were writing this in The Philadelphia Inquirer, April 11, 2004.

In the email I had from him recently, discussing plans to meet up, he wrote: "As luck has it, we'll be in Marfa, Texas of all places..." We decided to meet up in Providence later in the summer.

Writes House will host an informal memorial for Creeley on Monday April 4, from 5-6 PM in the Arts Cafe. Bring a poem, or Creeley story.
