Anthony Hecht was born 16 January 1923, and died 20 October 2004
- There’s not a good poet I know who has not at the beck and call of his memory a vast quantity of poetry that composes his mental library.
- Poetry operates by hints and dark suggestions. It is full of secrets and hidden formulae, like a witch’s brew.
- It doesn’t seem to me strange that children should like the macabre, the sensational, and the forbidden.
Hecht was an American poet whose work combined a deep interest in form with a passionate desire to confront the horrors of 20th century history.
