Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Anthony Hecht died Wednesday of lymphoma at his house in Washington, D.C. NPR's Michele Norris comments on his poetry, and we'll listen to a 2003 recording of Hecht reading from his own work. (Editors note: The audio for this segment has been edited from the broadcast version due to rights issues)
