Poetry. "If Walt Whitman had taken a Ph.D. in literary theory at New York University in the 1980s, and then wrote poetry, the outcome might have resembled THE BEE FLIES IN MAY. Following John Barth, Miller has constructed a funhouse: his musings refract images that contain fascinating, funny, and surreal moments of perception, but vision is distorted, twisted, sometimes made minuscule, other times writ large, and then expanded out of any proportion. both [Whitman and Miller] are poets who have written large period pieces that signify their awareness of America in crucial times"—Daniel Morris.
"Stephen Paul Miller is the Last of the New York School. His poems articulate like Ashbery's, collide like Koch's, shimmy like Schuyler's and orbit like O'Hara's."—Bob HolmanAuthor City: New York, NY USA
