". . . It is astounding to me that I was not even aware of this accomplished and moving poet. There is a great deal of pain on the poems, but it is a pain that makes sense, a tragic pain whose meaning rises from the way the poems are so firmly molded and formed from within."—James Wright.
Edited by Michael Wiegers and Chet Weise, Hidden Water: From the Frank Stanford Archives is a collection of unpublished poems, never before seen photos, drafts, plus correspondences between Stanford and poets such as Alan Dugan and Allen Ginsberg. Audio of Stanford reciting his poem "The Boathouse" will also be available as a download. Copper Canyon Press and Third Man Books have collaborated to make Hidden Water a must have complement to Copper Canyon's definitive Stanford collection What About This. Stanford's poetry, creative process, and "swam rat Rimbaud" character are all apparent in Hidden Water.
