Author: Frank Stanford

Frank Stanford (August 1, 1948 - June 3, 1978) was a prolific American poet. He is most known for his epic THE BATTLEFIELD WHERE THE MOON SAYS I LOVE YOU, a labyrinthine, highly lexical book absent stanzas and punctuation. In addition, Stanford published six shorter books of poetry throughout his 20s, and three posthumous collections of his writings (as well as a book of selected poems) have also been published. WHAT ABOUT THIS: COLLECTED POEMS OF FRANK STANFORD was published in 2015 by Copper Canyon Press. Just shy of his 30th birthday, Stanford died on June 3, 1978, in his home in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the victim of three self-inflicted pistol wounds to the heart. In the three decades since, he has become somewhat of a cult figure in American letters.
