2.0 out of 5 stars Typical Academic Verse, January 26, 2002
This review is from: Night Battle (Poets, Penguin) (Paperback)
Like most academic poets, Logan fails to transcend the petty boundaries of the incestuous world of MFA programs and the petty egos and infantile personalities ruling that world. One sees flashes of brilliance in Logan's work, but his poems are the poems of a man who is always looking over his shoulder, always striving to impress, always terrified of what the hacks in the world of academia think of him.

Bookfan: Who in the world are you? The only book reviews (all trash and slash jobs) you have written are about novels by people who also happen to be creative writing teachers. Did they all tell you not to quit your day job? Is this your only "publishing" prospect? How pathetic. This review reveals your identity:

"incestuous world of MFA programs and the petty egos and infantile personalities"

You said it, not me. Go be a plumber. You obviously like talking sh_t.
