From Nathalie Anderson

Friends, I write with sad news that many of you will have already heard, that Daniel Hoffman has died.  In addition to his shining career as a scholar and a poet, Dan has been a mentor to many of us in this area, and I know you’ll share my sorrow at his passing.  You’ll recall that the on-line magazine Per Contra has just published a series of brief essays and recollections celebrating his 90th birthday, which according to Wikipedia would have been this Wednesday, April 3.  Here’s a link to the Per Contra tributes, which will remind you vividly of Dan’s complexities:
