I think the comments about Robert Creeley being a generous teacher are completely true. When he was a visiting lecturer during my final residency at Bennington he attended some of the graduate readings and lectures -- a very rare occurrence from visiting lecturers.

More recently, the time and consideration he gave to some participants of a certain message board was more than charitable, if completely undeserved.

Reading posts on various newsgroups and blogs, it's striking how many writers' lives he touched, writers of all ages and styles. Combined with his poetry, it's quite the legacy.
