Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Mark Strand died on Saturday at his daughter’s home in Brooklyn, New York. He was 80 years old. Strand won the Pulitzer in 1999 for his a book of his poetry called “ Blizzard of One.”

His last book, in 2012, included reflection on the aging process. At the time, Here and Now’s Robin Young spoke to him about his collection called “ Almost Invisible.” Today we revisit that conversation.
