Breakfast with Thom Gunn PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Breakfast with Thom Gunn free pdf Randall Mann's "Breakfast with Thom Gunn" is a work both direct and unsettling. Haunted by the afterlife of Thom Gunn (1929-2004), one of the most beloved gay literary icons of the twentieth century, the poems are moored in Florida and California, but the backdrop is 'pitiless', the trees 'thin and bloodless', the words 'like the icy water' of the San Francisco Bay. Mann, fiercely intelligent, open yet elusive, draws on the 'graceful erosion' of both landscape and the body, on the beauty that lies in unbeauty. With audacity, anxiety, and unbridled desire, this gifted lyric poet grapples with dilemmas of the gay self embroiled in - and aroused by - a glittering, unforgiving subculture. "Breakfast with Thom Gunn" is at once formal and free, forging a sublime integrity in the fire of wit, intensity, and betrayal.
