William Logan?S dark, intense, muscular verse has long unsettled some of the standard agreements of American poetry. His eighth collection finds its home in the elsewhere, in the various small towns and ancient cities where the poet has felt some shimmering presence of the past.

by William Logan (Author). Logan uncovers the memory of the Leviathan in the Massachusetts fishing village where he was raised, the coupling of gods in Venice at the millennium, and signs of the Flood in Texas. He explores places familiar and unfamiliar, whether tenting on the plains with General Custer or seeing a horrific vision behind the Blaschkas? famous glass models of the invertebrates.

Poet and critic William Logan was born in Boston and earned degrees from Yale University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Logan’s poetry is distinguished by its intricate formal structures; his work frequently uses traditional forms such as the sonnet, and rhyme and meter schemes, to explore concepts of truth and art as well as various ironies of the human condition.

He is also the author of seven books of criticism, including Dickinson's Nerves, Frost's Woods: Poetry in the Shadow of the Past (Columbia University Press, 2018), Guilty Knowledge, Guilty Pleasure: The Dirty Art of Poetry (Columbia University Press, 2014), and Our Savage Art: Poetry and the Civil Tongue (Columbia University Press, 2009).

This book is my first encounter with William Logan's work, and it's almost certainly unfair to judge him by one collection, but I feel like it didn't live up to its provocative title and cover, not to mention the great epigraph from Dickens' "Martin Chuzzlewit," about alligators basking in the sun. There is scintillating dazzle throughout the book, much like that sleeping alligator, but little sense that the poems could come to life spontaneously and wreak havoc.

  • Road.to sliver
Logan's dark nostalgia remains on display as he ventures through various cities of the past and present in poetry. His end-rhymes here can be a little strong and, for those who do not necessarily love highly precise and technical formalism with a somewhat downbeat perspective, I imagine they will find Logan alienating. Yet for those interested in contemporary formal verse, I would definitely recommend this, and particularly "London Through the Glass" and "Paris in Winter."
  • Velan
Once again William Logan graces us with his deep, intense style. In this work he takes us through cities of the past in compelling style. "Paris in Winter" and "Ballad" are among my favorites. Having said that one must quickly add it is hard to have a favorite with Mr. Logan's work as each piece is as evocative as the next.
