2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Terence Winch on February 1, 2012
Format: Paperback
Tim Dlugos died of AIDS in 1990 at age 40. People who knew his work back then realized that he was an impressively talented poet. But it was not until his friend David Trinidad put together this magnum opus of Dlugos's work that the extent of his accomplishment could be seen in full. The result of years of research and editing, this book makes clear that, despite his early death, Tim Dlugos deserves recognition as a major voice in 20th century American poetry.
