Steele is the author of five books of poetry, among them, Sapphics Against Anger and Other Poems (1986). His poetry is known as more strictly "formal" than the work of most fellow New Formalists in that he rarely uses inexact rhymes or metrical substitutions, and is sparing in his use of enjambment. He has also the author of two books on prosody: Missing Measures, a history and evaluation of modern free verse; and All the Fun's in How You Say a Thing, an introduction to English versification.
