Incisive, inspiring, and intimidating 9 Jan 2007
By Phat Kat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The man can write, has intense opinions, and exceptionally high standards. And why not. No one, I think, could possibly agree with every review here, but even where I disagreed, it was more a matter of degree. Logan has made a lot of enemies, I believe Franz Wright is NOT a fan; but this is a book every serious reader of poetry should get.
