Robert CreeleyOne of post-modern poetry's leading figures, the "bohemian modernist," Robert Creeley, who was known for his short, free-form stylings, died from complications of pneumonia at age 78 on March 30 at a hospital in Odessa, Texas. He had been struggling with a lung ailment. Creeley taught for 37 years at the State University of New York at Buffalo and was also a professor of English at Brown University in Rhode Island. He wrote more than 60 books of poetry spanning five decades. Creeley arose out of the Beat Generation, alongside Kerouac and Ginsberg, even helping to type up the poem "Howl". He was also associated in the 50s with the Black Mountain Poets.

A Memorial for Robert Creeley is planned for Tuesday, April 5th, 7PM-8PM, at Danny's Tavern, 1951 W.
