This book is enormous, but it is navigable and enriching in all sorts of ways: what you get from Dorn is not available anywhere else in poetry.

Synopsis

The first definitive collected edition of American poet Edward Dorn’s writings, this irrepressibly offbeat volume marries the old West with American counterculture. As it celebrates Dorn’s epic poem Gunslinger, this collection—which is both wonderfully resourceful in tone and idiom—puts Edward Dorn on an equal footing with his masters.
