Allen Hoey

From the introduction:
        Hoey's suite of poems-arising in part from a visit to France, to the scenes of Van Gogh's torture-explores the myth in the most dramatic way possible, i.e., through the stream of the painter's consciousness. What a remarkable achievement! Even in our age of great biographical exploits, I know nothing to surpass this recounting of the genius, the inceptive mastermind, of modern art, done in beautifully written poems, which I recommend wholeheartedly to everyone's attention.
