American poet Galway Kinnell, whose work emphasized the ordinary over the fantastical, died from leukemia Tuesday at his home in Sheffield, Vermont. He was 87. When the NewsHour interviewed Kinnell in 2006, he read his poem “Why Regret?” a highlight from his last book of poetry, “Strong Is Your Hold,” released the same year.
