There is an interview with Edward Hirsch over at his publisher's website (Harcourt). I started reading Hirsch's Poets Choice (one of my Books of the Week) last night and it really is a lovely book. Chunky and nicely produced, Hirsch gives a bit of an introduction to each of his chosen poems and then presents the poem itself. I'm always a sucker for a bit of a context to anthologised poetry; and Hirsch does a good job here.
