Between when he published his first book i The Signing Knives i and when he died at the age of twenty nine Frank Stanford published seven volumes of poetry Within a year of his death two posthumous collections were published At the time of this death as Leon Stokesbury asserts in his introduction Stanford was the best poet in America under the age of thirty five br br i The Light the Dead See i collects the best work from those nine volumes and six previously unpublished poems In the earlier poems Stanford creates a world where he could keep childhood alive deny time and mutability and place a version of himself at the center of great myth and drama br br Later the denial of time and mutability gives way to an obsessive and familiar confrontation with death Although Stanford paid an enormous price for his growing familiarity with Death as a presence the direct address to that presence is a source of much of the striking originality and stunning power in the poetry, I don t believe in tame poetry Poetry busts guts Frank Stanford br br i The i poetry publishing event of the season this six hundred plus page book highlights the arc of Frank Stanford s all too brief and incandescently brilliant career br br Despite critical praise and near mythic status as a poet Frank Stanford s oeuvre has never fully been unified The mystery and legend surrounding his life and his suicide before the age of thirty has made it nearly impossible to fully and accurately celebrate his body of work Until now br br This welcome and necessary volume includes hundreds of previously unpublished poems a short story an interview and is richly illustrated with draft poems photographs and odd ephemera br br As Dean Young writes in the Foreword to the book Many of these poems seem as if they were written with a burnt stick With blood in river mud Frank Stanford demonically prolific approaches the poem not as an exercise of rhetoric or a puzzle of signifiers but as a man looking for his own tongue in a knife fight with a ghost br br br b When It s After Dark b br br i I steal br all the light bulbs br and hide them like eggs br in a basket br going to some outlaw br I put on the best I can find br I cover them with a swatch br of something br that swells like a bite br that bleeds green br cloth that smells br of a feed store br but looks br to of been worn br I go over to nasty willy s bridge br and throw them into the creek br there in the shade I listen br for them br to make nests to escape br agony and burst i, Poetry YOU is a collection of poetry by Frank Stanford published shortly after his startling death in YOU was published by Lost Roads Publishers formed in by C D Wright and the author himself Drawing from his childhood in the Mississippi Delta and the Ozark mountains Sanford s work is reflecting dreamlike and quizzically simple When I first encountered Frank Stanford s poetry I felt a fine rush of hope and envy I feel occasionally whenever a poet s language pushes me far beyond my own Unruly and urgent the poems stood out from quieter meditations around them as pure dream possibly nightmare curiously lit from within Leslie Ullman, Fiction These are not stories in the contemporary sense but tales spun out of the mystical and the ordinary a history of men sizing up other men and bottles being passed around a campfire If death figures here there is also the dichotomy of images honing in on an inevitable end and a language that is enormously relentlessly alive Silvia Curbelo
