RJA member and Colorado Poet Laureate Dave Mason has a new collection of essays out, Two Minds of a Western Poet, published in the prestigious University of Michigan Poets on Poetry Series. The third essay in the book, pp. 29-41, “Some Narrative Poets of the American West,” is the keynote address Dave delivered at our meeting at Los Aptos in 2008. It is a substantial essay, and Dave also graciously acknowledges the RJA in the book’s preface. To read the essay, download it as a pdf or buy the book.
