I still own the copy I bought for high school English and that is now going back a few. I fell in love with the imagery and use of language, the atmosphere that his words seemed to build and flesh out. His was my first true exposure to darker themes and his was the first poetry I actually understood and enjoyed.

I admit his work is not for everyone, ( )

Frankly, I was really surprised at how much I did not like these stories and poems. Boring and trite. ( )
