Review: Hard Night by Christian Wiman

Synopsis: This is a collection of poems by the Editor of Poetry, and is several poems gathered into three larger over covering art, loneliness and love.

Review: Wiman's poetry is crisp and clear. It reminds me of Dickinson or Hughes. It's not flowery, verbose or sentimental. He uses interesting images, odd word choices and clear tone to convey emotions. In all, I enjoyed his work and look forward to reading more.
