1996 XZ25. Discovered 1996 Dec. 14 by P. G. Comba at Prescott.

Named in honor of Robert Pinsky (1940- ), poet laureate of the United States since 1997. Besides several books of poetry, Pinsky has produced a much-acclaimed new English translation of Dante's {see planet (2999)} Inferno. Written in slant rhyme, Pinsky's version captures the rhythm and grandeur of the great Italian poet's masterpiece. (M 32096)
