      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. Regardle [...]

      Some great poems here. Dickey may have been the great American poet of the 70's. Check out "The Leap," & "Falling" 2 heavyweights!!!

      Thrilling, chilling and unnerving. From the fantasy eroticism of The Sheep Child to well and way beyond. Read this to learn how to make words sing.

      You may know him by the trail of sexually assaulted yuppie weekend warriors! Dickey wrote Deliverance. He also wrote some hot verses. My favorite is "Falling."

      Have read much of this book before, in the early and mid-70s, as the individual volumes were being published; Wesleyan has now published a number of these as ebooks, including this one, and I'm looking forward to catching up on the poems I'd missed. If memory serves, one of the books collected here (BUCKDANCER'S CHOICE) took a National Book Award for poetry its year; one of the poems from that collection is a nice little chiller called "Pursuit from Under" and it's well worth a look.

      The complete works. Collects a lot of earlier work as well as the later collections.
