Well, I have been reading Donald Justice these last 3 days, but not taking time to post. I had not read any of his work and now I have been through many of them, I think he is not a favorite. There is both whimsy and some meanness I think in him, or maybe just in the things he writes about. Anyway, here are three that I liked more than some others. Meanness is probably unfair, and not present in these. Well, if you have another take on him, feel free to comment. I like that he has played with form a little, in addition to the villanelle, there is a pantoum and a couple of sestinas in this collection.
