Good News: Stephen Burt on D.A. Powell, poetry, and sex at "Boston Review"'s website
It's wonderful to see a comprehensive critique of a gay writer's poems done in such a thoughtful way. Here's a passage from Stephen Burt's appraisal of D.A. Powell's new book, Useless Landscape, or A Guide for Boys:
Steve Fellner's second book of poems The Weary World Rejoices was published last year. His first book of poems Blind Date with Cavafy won the Thom Gunn Gay Male Poetry Award.
His memoir, All Screwed Up, focuses on his relationship with his ex-trampoline champion mother.
