NEW YORK (AP) — Robert Hass, a Pulitzer Prize winner and former U.S. poet laureate, has received a $100,000 lifetime achievement award. The Academy of American Poets announced Tuesday that Hass had been given the Wallace Stevens award for "outstanding and proven mastery." The 73-year-old Hass is known for such collections as "Time and Materials" and "The Apple Trees at Olema." Previous winners of the Stevens award include John Ashbery and Adrienne Rich.
