The Expansive Poetry of Sean Thomas Dougherty

Poet Joe Weil shares with readers of the Best American Poetry blog his early personal experiences with poet Sean Thomas Dougherty, author of the recently released Sasha Sings the Laundry on the Line. Of Sean, he writes “I knew by his references, by his metaphors, and sound that he had read a great deal of poetry, that he had a far roaming yet accurate ear, and that these poems I was hearing out loud would deepen rather than disappear when I brought the book back with me to the mold making plant and read them at lunch break.”  Read more of what Joe Weil has to say about Sean here: http://blog.bestamericanpoetry.com/the_best_american_poetry/2011/02/singing-the-laundry-tribute-to-poet-sean-thomas-dougherty-i-met-poet-sean-thomas-dougherty-back-in-1996-when-he-featured-fo.html
