... George Garrett; Critically Acclaimed Novelist and Poet. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Update: Something more personal: George Garrett's Generosity.

Post bumped.

  1. Hi Frank,

    I'm getting the Poetic Obituaries ready for Poetry & Poets in Rags on Tuesday, and found a recent article by Kelly Cherry on George Garret's work that I'll link to:

    Blackbird: The Achievement of George Garrett

    Also, at the bottom of that page there are links to several of his writings, an array of short genres, the first listed here, a poem with the header "In Memoriam" for him:

    In Memoriam: Annual Surrender


    Garden Spot, U.S.A.

    Gator Bait

    Empty Bed Blues
