Octopus (Paperback) (Patrick Warner)
about this item
As apt to channel the confessionalism of Anne Sexton as the red-in-tooth-and-claw nature poetry of Ted Hughes, Patrick Warner's voice ranges freely from the colloquial to the baroque. By harboring and honoring such fraught tensions, Warner has built a taut and original body of work. In Octopus we have him at his best.
