Cultural Writing. Biography. Poetry. Gilmore's long-awaited biography of one of the most celebrated poets of our time. Based on the poet's extensive correspondence and on interviews with members of the poet's family, his business associates, friends, and fellow poets, THE FORCE OF DESIRE is a major achievement. Tracking Bronk's childhood in rural upper New York State, his years at Dartmouth and Harvard, and his later years in the village of Hudson Falls, Gilmore discusses Bronk's development as a poet, his struggles with his sexuality, and his conflicts and friendships with poets, editors, and publishers. "Lyman Gilmore's biography...precisely and movingly [renders] Bronk's life, illuminating the transmigration of incident, relationship and intellectual development into one of our major bodies of poetry"--Michael more
