News at Eleven: Only one of the essays in Reading Duncan Reading,

Sarah E. Ehlers's "Robert Duncan's Miltonic Persuasion: The Emergence of a Radical Poetic," even focuses exclusively upon the early work. By all current accounts, today's readers and critics are far more prevalently drawn to Duncan's later poems, however the majority of the Collected Early, originally published by small presses and little magazines, has never been readily available until now. Despite the apparent lack of interest, it proves well deserving of greater attention.

There is much to praise in the overall editing of the Collected Early.
