Larry Frank is an important poet. He follows the American tradition of plain speech, independence, shared intimacy. Frank breaks new ground with his immediate vibrancy, blending a charged language, emotion, and modern insight with huge energy. Both the bitter and sweet, the odd and standard lie down comfortably to create a cornucopia of words and images In fact, there is nothing that escapes Mr. Frank’s wit, focus and curiosity. He has sifted through the storehouse of his memories and experiences to create a fine distillation of themes regarding nature, love, war, and human interaction. In all, these poems are for readers who are excited by poetry as open as buck-shot spread.
