Anecdotal Evidence Weighs in on Our Savage Art

Patrick Kurp’s Anecdotal Evidence, an excellent lit-blog, recently devoted a post to William Logan’s new collection Our Savage Art: Poetry and the Civil Tongue. As might be expected from any reader of Logan, Kurp does have some misgivings about Logan’s sometimes “savage” approach to the poets about whom he writes. However, for the most part, Kurp sees Logan as a sharp reader, whose clear-eyed assessments of contemporary poetry as well as his remarkable use of language make him a necessary critic.

You can read the full post here and for more on Logan, we have posted a chapter from his book, “The Bowl of Diogenes; or, The End of Criticism”
