Picked this up for the poem "Degrees of Grey in Philipsburg." I had written a poem for a seminar, and the prof told me it reminded me a lot of that poem. After reading Hugo's poem, I can see why. I wonder, in fact, if he wasn't accusing me of borrowing just a little too heavily from it. But I had never heard of Hugo before that, as I can recall.

My poem, in case you're curious, is available at http://tinyurl.com/deogq . Shameless plug? Why not? ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393307840, Paperback)

The definitive collection of a major American poet’s work.

Richard Hugo was, in James Wright’s words, “a great poet, true to our difficult life.” Making Certain It Goes On brings together, as Hugo wished, the poems published in book form during his lifetime, together with the new poems he wrote in his last years.
