W.S. Merwin, Poet of Life’s Damnable Evanescence, Dies at 91

New York Times, reported March 15, 2019: W.S. Merwin, Poet of Life’s Damnable Evanescence, Dies at 91.
W. S. Merwin, a formidable American poet who for more than 60 years labored under a formidable poetic yoke: the imperative of using language — an inescapably concrete presence on the printed page — to conjure absence, silence and nothingness, died on Friday at his home near Haiku-Pauwela, Hawaii. He was 91.
