Om forfatteren

The Saturday Review said of Poems (1961), the first volume by the native New Yorker Alan Dugan: "His poetry is a special way of looking at things. . . . Through personal experience of war he shapes universal messages, while he takes history, religion, and mythology and gives them an intimate vis mere meaning." This book won the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize in 1962, and in the same year the poet won a fellowship in literature at the American Academy in Rome. The New York Times found that in Poems 2 (1963), Dugan reveals "a sharp eye for the sights and sounds of New York." In Poems 3, Dugan "writes with an anger at society that moves from artless outcry to black resignation in the face of the world's evils, and back again" (Saturday Review). (Bowker Author Biography) Alan Dugan's first book, "Poems" was chosen for the Yale Series of Younger Poets & won its grand prize. Each subsequent book has been simply titled in sequence: the current collection bringing us to "Poems Seven". He has won the National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, the Prix de Rome & an award in literature form the American Academy & the Institute of Arts & Letters. He has been a fellow of the National Academy in Rome, the recipient of two Guggenheim Foundation fellowships & a grant form the Rockefeller Foundation. Since 1969, the author has been affiliated with the Provincetown Find Arts Work Center in Provincetown & lives with his wife in Truro, Mass. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Alan Dugan's poems scour off the sentiment and leave your bones gleaming. How has he stayed so loyal to actual? Obviously, it hasn't been easy.

I bought this book in hardcover, when it came out in 2001, at the now-defunct Tudor Bookshop, and I've been pecking away at it intermittently in the long, crazy decade since. Poems Seven was a revelation to me then, and a pleasure to revisit now: Dugan's poetry has swagger and bite, a caustic energy that appealed to a younger, more uncertain version of myself and that remains bracing and enjoyable today, even though I can perceive now its limitations. A drinker and womanizer, a formerly low-level Madison Avenue adman and roustabout, a cantakerous Marxist lover of the classics, Dugan's poetry bristles with profanity, sex, and the violence of the world. If it can be said that his prosody did not vary much of the course of his long career -- he consistently produces short lyrics in jagged bursts of free verse, with sardonic titles -- it must also be said that his voice was genuinely distinctive, an expression of an echt American original.… (mere)

Alan Dugan is blunt, honest and direct. His poems are remarkable.

Dugan's terse, explosive poems are distinctive, humorous, and pithy.
