Buckdancer's Choice: Poems (Paperback)

Synopsis

Whoever looks to a new book by James Dickey for further work in an established mode, or for mere novelty, is going to be disappointed. But those who seek instead a true widening of the horizons of meaning, coupled with a sure-handed mastery of the craft of poetry, will find this latest collection satisfying indeed.



Here is a man who matches superb gifts with a truly subtle imagination, into whose depths he is courageously traveling-pioneering-in exploratory penetrations into areas of life that are too often evaded or denied."The Firebombing," "Slave Quarters," "The Fiend"-these poems, with the others that comprise the present volume, show a mature and original poet at his finest.

He has been poet-in-residence at Reed College and at San Fernando Valley State College, and has lectured and given readings at many other institutions. In the spring of 1966 he was named consultant in poetry to the Library of Congress for the year 1966-1967. His published collections include Into the Stone(1960), Drowning With Others (1962), and Helmets (1964), two latter in the Wesleyan Poetry Program.
