Donald Hall (born 20 September 1928) is an American poet, writer, editor and literary critic. A graduate of Phillips Exeter Academy, Harvard and Oxford, Hall is the author of over 50 books across several genres from children's literature, biography, memoir, essays, and including 22 volumes of verse. Regarded as a "plainspoken, rural poet," Hall's work "explores the longing for a more bucolic past and reflects the poet’s abiding reverence for nature." Early in his career, he became the first poetry editor of The Paris Review (1953-1961), a prominent quarterly literary journal, and was noted for interviewing poets and other authors on their craft. Hall is respected for his work as an academic, having taught at Stanford University, Bennington College and the University of Michigan, who has made significant contributions to the study and craft of writing.

Famous quotes containing the word hall:

    For a hundred and fifty years, in the pasture of dead horses,
    roots of pine trees pushed through the pale curves of your ribs,
    yellow blossoms flourished above you in autumn, and in winter
    frost heaved your bones in the ground—old toilers, soil makers:
    O Roger, Mackerel, Riley, Ned, Nellie, Chester, Lady Ghost.
    —Donald Hall (b. 1928)
