Kees deserves to be much better known. The New Yorker did publish many of his poems.
One of America's greatest poets.
True great poetry, like Dickinson, Stevens or Moore, hard to read but the reward is definitively there!
Kees is probably the greatest obscure poet of the 20th century in American poetry. Nearly on par with Stevens in his words and music. -LP
