American editor, poet, and critic.

Besides being the founder and long-standing editor of the highly respected literary journal The Hudson Review, Morgan has recently been building a reputation as an important poet. He published his first collection, A Book of Change, when he was fifty, and other volumes followed.

Critics praise his lucid style, technical skill, and the sensibility he shows in developing ideas and describing emotions. He uses a wide variety of forms; critics find some more effective than others. However, in his recent Death Mother and Other Poems his focus on death gives the volume its unity.
