I don't know his work extremely well, but I've read about half of the selected poems volume I bought last year and I find him incredibly moving. It's like "reading" a Rothko painting for me. His words hit me that hard and that mysteriously.

I love Merrill. I worked for Merrill's great nephew, here in Boulder, where we fondly referred to him as Uncle Merrill. I remember when he died and the obit that aired on NPR. It was a sad day.
