Stephen Dunn: Many a Beautiful Strangeness —Summer 2011



A feature on Stephen Dunn offers five poems, a self-conducted “intraview,” an interview by Laura McCullough, and assessments by Kathleen Graber and others. Jacob Sullins’ “12 Rounds” performs a nuanced turn on the “cop story”; and Karen Laws’ “Paolo’s Turn” shatters clichés about the “nursing home story.” Jed Rasula examines cultural history in “Wagnerism… ,” and cultural history of a different sort is found in the art of the Date Farmers. Poems by Billy Collins and others.
