Poetry. YOU is a collection of poetry by Frank Stanford, published shortly after his startling death in 1979. YOU was published by Lost Roads Publishers, formed in 1976 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.

About the Author:

Frank Stanford (August 1, 1948 - June 3, 1978) was a prolific American poet. He is most known for his epic THE BATTLEFIELD WHERE THE MOON SAYS I LOVE YOU, a labyrinthine, highly lexical book absent stanzas and punctuation. In addition, Stanford published six shorter books of poetry throughout his 20s, and three posthumous collections of his writings (as well as a book of selected poems) have also been published. Just shy of his 30th birthday, Stanford died on June 3, 1978, in his home in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the victim of three self-inflicted pistol wounds to the heart. In the three decades since, he has become somewhat of a cult figure in American letters.
