The Horse Show At Midnight

And An Afternoon Of Pocket Billiards - Poems

BY HENRY TAYLOR

Brief Description:
The poet is clerk of Goose Creek Meeting in Virginia, and, indeed the fifth in a direct line of descendants to hold that same post. This collection of 24 poems reveals the range and power of a young Southern poet whose work is characterized by a tensile strength and a coldly factual style which beneath the surface carries great passion. Some of the poems masterfully employ twists of irony; others utilize grotesque, yet real, characters and situations; others are nimble parodies. All of the poems, however, proclaim Taylor's sensitivity to the rhythms and idioms of everyday speech. All touch the unusual, the comic, the despairing, the hopeful.

Louisiana State University Press 2006 128 PP. Paper
