Ed Ochester Presents a Poem by Dean Young


Re–blog from the Best American Poetry.

Poetry is a big passion of mine. I buy — books being another big passion — and read pretty much every poetry book published in Swedish. I’m not that acquainted with poetry from abroad, but I do read some foreign poetry and then always through the Web. (In one sense I do read quite a lot of poetry from abroad, but then always translated into Swedish. Most often in the best Swedish poetry magazine around: OEI.) The Best American Poetry is a great resource for American poetry and now I have yet another American poet to follow: Dean Young.
