“Wounded Elders: On Racial Identity and Reviewing,” by Paisley Rekdal in response to William Logan’s review of Night Sky with Exit Wounds, has been imprinted onto my mind as a masterclass on precise, incisive prose, especially about poetry that engages race and war. It will refine your thinking on reviewing, artistry and identity.
