*Thom Gunn. Jack Straw's Castle and Other Poems. 1976. 77 pp.

I was a student of Gunn's back in another century, exactly 30 years ago. My copy is hardback and autographed by the author. I probably didn't realize how good a writer he was at the time. He is very competent within that Audenesque voice, but even better when he breaks free from it.

I'm closing in a the first half of a percent.
