Great Regulars: At his best, and at this book's best,

[Alexander] Taylor combines the two, his love poems with his political poetry. In poem after poem--"Comedians," "Clear Water," "Overheard Among the Guerrillas"--the political bleeds over into the poem of erotic adoration in a way that lends depth and texture and a heightened meaning to both. These poems are sprinkled throughout this book like pearls, and I found myself returning to them for re-reading time and time again.

Take, for instance, "Overheard Among the Guerrillas:"

from Powells: Review-A-Day: Poetry at the Gates of Fury
