I was attracted to this because of the two Americans' names on the cover - Clayton Eshleman & Kenneth Koch - two poets whose work seems diametrically opposed; Eshleman the hot-blooded man of myths, and Koch the emotionally rich but comic and cartoony and artificial. I wondered how they could both like the same poet so much, and Deguy's work does somehow reside in an overlap between the two Americans.
