Actually some of Buk's earlier work is interesting, when he actually cared about writing good poetry. But when he saw his more dashed-off, dirtier stuff gaining in popularity, he was wooed into becoming a lazy poet. He wrote a piece once that told young poets not to 'try'. That became his mantra. As far as my interest in him, he's a hoot to read, but when I discovered James Merrill, that blew Buk out of the water for me entirely. -LP
