Poetry. "Gary Duehr's WINTER LIGHT proceeds through a Boston winter at a walker's pace the reader falls into step with, one with the poem's gait and mind. What unfolds is a detective story or, better still, a detective love story. Under 'the weight of this life,' Duehr's poem has the jitters. The hero is an anxious sleepwalker whose rhythmic speech registers the tremors of our moment. Not many poems create a convincing world. That, we are told, is for novels. Since Duehr never bothered to learn this rule, we have, for our pleasure, his original poem. His readers will experience a different Boston this winter"--William Corbett. Duehr has received grants from the LEF Foundation and the NEA, and fellowships from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation and the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
