Ostriker Sings Praise for Eliot Katz
Eliot Katz has been
for years an exuberant heir of Walt Whitman, William Carlos Williams, and Allen
Ginsberg. He has been oracular, comic, furiously compassionate, explosively and
winsomely political, madly inventive, acutely vernacular. To read or hear him
is to become energized by his contagious humanity. And now Eliot Katz has become
a major poet of witness.
