Dorn's high-spirited, crazy-quilt, complex anti-epic is a masterful critique of late twentieth-century capitalism and is one of the great comic poems of American literature. Dorn is one of the few political poets in America; this fantasy about a demigod cowboy, a saloon madam, and a talking horse named Claude Levi-Strauss, who travel the Southwest in search of Howard Hughes, has become a minor classic.

Most people would say ...

Most people would say that the epic poem is a dead art, pointing (perhaps) to Ezra Pound's Cantos as the last, feeble breath of the form. Edward Dorn's Gunslinger puts the lie to that. It's a powerful, humorous book. Wordplay and a strange, galloping rhythm make it a joy to read in a way that a lot of modern poetry isn't. It was written in the 1970s and shows it, but it's anything but dated. Highly recommended.
