    Poet Laureate Philip Levine Dies at 87

    Dan Friedman, writing for the Forward on August 9, 2011, characterized the poet as a working-class Jewish hero of words: Levine was one of the oldest poets laureate and his work was certainly the most humble in tone from among that august group. Though he lived in Fresno, Calif., and had spent time in New York City, he was born in Detroit to Russian Jewish immigrant parents and had long identified with the blue collar workers among whom he worked in that city.
