Poet Jack Gilbert Dead At 87
"Famous for eschewing fame, he did not go to writers' conferences or cocktail parties, gave readings sporadically and did not publish a great deal, either." Yet audience members in tears were a common sight at his (rare) public readings, and readers often told him that his work had changed their lives. The New York Times 11/15/12
