Literary Nonfiction. Essays. Poetry. Essays (1976-2016) include a home-town introduction of the author's friend John Ashbery, a memoir of his friendship with James Schuyler (judged "the best single essay on Schuyler I know" by Richard Howard in the New York Times), a revisionist history of the New York School ("fine and gossipy," wrote Peter Schjeldahl in the New Yorker), and a long essay on Niedecker and the evolutional sublime ("magisterial" according to Barry Schwabsky at Hyperallergic; "marvelous" notes Laura Sims at Coldfront). Also an outsider's look at Emerson written originally for the Library of America plus an afterword to the poems of Donald Britton, described by Kevin Killian as "a beautiful portrait" and by Schwabsky as "a fiercely searching critical overview of the New York poetry world of the 1980s."
