He received a National Medal of Arts, the Frost Medal, and the Bollingen Prize. He was twice U.S. Poet Laureate, once when it was called Consultant in Poetry at the Library of Congress. From 1969 to 1977, he was editor of the Yale Younger Poets Series. He taught at Columbia University for twenty-two years.
