James Dickey – The Whole Motion Collected Poems, 1945-1992

Review From User :

This is a volume of poetry I constantly pick up and read or reread. Howard Starks and Dennis Letts first brought Dickey to my attention in the mid-seventies in college. They were both incredible teachers and pure genius when it came to selecting poetry. When I heard Dennis read "Looking For The Buckhead Boys" in that stage and screen voice of his, I was sold, and when Howard chipped in with his love of Dickey's work I began to read it all. Thirty years later I'm as hooked as I ever was. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Dickey. I fail to see how anyone could not be blown away by his best work. The man was a poet of incredible talent, one I'll still be reading thirty years from now if possible.
