Thomas M. Disch's essays on poetry, poets and poetasters. This includes the famous title essay, an indictment of the state of American poetry, as well as essays on Kathleen Raine, Kenneth Koch, novel-length narrative poetry, and some omnibus poetry book review essays. Also a great cover photograph of Disch with his big, thick tattooed forearms crossed on his chest.
