Thank gawd I finally corrected one small part of my technical ineptness by allowing, two weeks ago, comments to show up in my email. Otherwise, I probably never would have seen a comment on my review of Duncan's Bending The Bow. Here's a link to that Jan 27 post, with its attendant dialogue.http://brianpalmu.blogspot.com/2009_01_01_archive.html
If you've read Duncan, either that volume or anything else by him, please jump in. He's obviously still important in contemporary influence and concern. But rather than an academic connect-the-dots influence puzzle, I'd rather deal with the poems, which often get ignored or, at best, glossed over, when talking about "new styles or forms".
