Eshuneutics reviews "Seven Studies for a Self Portrait"
Eshuneutics is writing a seven-part review of Seven Studies for a Self Portrait, and has posted Parts 1 to 3 so far. Part 1 examines the significance of the collection as a book of gay poetry. Its emphasis on my attempt to "give style" to disparate experiences is completely accurate. Part 2 is a more philosophical meditation on the spiritual ethos of the book. Part 3 reads the opening title sequence closely for its poetic strategy and music. The on-going review looks set to complement Nicholas Liu's QLRS review very nicely.
