Description

Peter Meinke was a master of traditional poetic forms long before the current interest in "the new formalism." His work is, in turn, witty, comic, sane, deeply moving, and always readable. Liquid Paper collects the best of his previously published poems from the late 1960s on with a generous selection of new work.

Review quote

Meinke is a skilled craftsman. He is especially adept at building to a strong ending or the ending that shies the poem into an unexpected, but perfect place. He also has the most endearing sense of humopr, the ability to laugh at himself.
