Fred Chappell

Fred Chappell is a poet who I believe is not read or talked about enough outside of his home state of North Carolina. He is a true master of form, and he wields the most exquisite formal experiments with such seeming ease and nonchalance. He is one of our greatest poets. Check out some of his work here and here and here.

  1. He's one of the best and perhaps will be the most lasting.
