Clayton Eshleman Hades in Manganese Black Sparrow 1981Clayton Eshleman probably knows detail about stuff than any poet since Ezra Pound Which is no doubt a good thing but those who pursue meanings in their poetry are going to run themselves into a very brick very hard wall when coming upon this mid era collection of Eshleman's workAccording to its introduction and how often to books of poetry have introductions?
