Poetic Obituaries: [Daryl] Hine was also a translator of ancient

works and, for several years, the editor of Poetry magazine.

Inspired by his education in the classics and his love of Latin, Mr. Hine wrote more than a dozen books of poetry, using traditional forms like the sestina (six stanzas of six lines each, followed by one of three lines).
