Item description for Sincerest Flatteries: A Little Book of Imitations by Kurt Brown...
The first in the new Tupelo Press Masters series
In this collection, Kurt Brown pays tribute to twenty-four leading poets through a masterful act of literary ventriloquism. Channeling the personas of luminaries Robert Bly, Mary Oliver, Charles Simic, and others, the author's razor wit playfully illumines each poet's style and celebrates their voice.
Kurt Brown is the founding director of the Aspen Writers' Conference. He has written six chapbooks and four poetry collections and has edited numerous anthologies. He teaches poetry at Sarah Lawrence College and is on the board of the Poets House in New York City.
