The Library of Congress has just named Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Charles Simic as the nation's new Poet Laureate. Simic, a Serbian native, is not the first immigrant to be slelected, but he did use the occasion of his selection to comment on his immigrant past:

I am especially touched and honored to be selected because I am an
immigrant boy who didn't speak English until I was 15," he said.
