Daniel (Gerard) Hoffman 1923–
American poet, critic, and editor.
Hoffman has been considered an important poetic voice in America since his first volume of poetry, An Armada of Thirty Whales, was selected for the Yale Series of Younger Poets in 1954. Certain basic themes recur throughout his work: the constancy of nature, the renewing power of myth, and a concern for the creative process itself. Hoffman is also the editor of the Harvard Guide to Contemporary American Writing.
