9780896720541: Caliban in Blue and Other Poems

Caliban in Blue is a collection of poems by Walter McDonald. In these poems, McDonald incorporates various aspects of his life such as family, characters from works of literature, and memories of a war he went to and the planes he flew."Walter McDonald's poems are not pounded out on the typewriter, but beaten out of life. They taste and breathe and cry. They had to be written. They must be read." —Paul Engle "There's a deep pleasure in reading a book of poems that are simply and consistently interesting. McDonald's poems are that, except that 'simply' may not be the right word. They move with complex and contrary forces. And they are informed by experience and perspective rare in a first book." —Miller WilliamsWalter McDonald lives in Lubbock, Texas, with his wife. Once an Air Force pilot and instructor at the Air Force Academy, he most recently taught creative writing and American literature at Texas Tech University. In addition to his poetry, he has published fiction and essays and is co-editor of A 'Catch-22' Casebook. A Ph.D. graduate of The University of Iowa, he is past president of the Texas Association of Creative Writing Teachers.
