Award-winning American poet Robert Bly dies aged 94

Nov 23 2021

The poet Robert Bly, who counted the National Book Award and the Poetry Society of America’s Frost Medal among his many honours, has died. He was 94.

The Star Tribune newspaper, in his native Minnesota, said Bly died on Sunday. His daughter, Mary Bly, told the Associated Press that he died after suffering from dementia for 14 years.

“Dad had no pain,” she said. “His whole family was around him, so how much better can you do?”
