Poetic Obituaries: In 1955, at the age of 23, Kate [Barnes]

had her first poem published in the New Yorker magazine. Her life in poetry blossomed, with poems published in many magazines and anthologies, and four books of poems published, two by the publisher David Godine. She was a well-loved reader and teacher, and after returning to Maine in the early 1980s she was named Maine's first official Poet Laureate.
