William Heyen on “Love, War, Fire, Wind”


“Eliot Katz, spiritual son of Whitman & Ginsberg, is a poet of hypnotic velocity, of anger that has risen to aria, of a comic (& sometimes elegiac) high seriousness. His is Walt’s ‘primal sanity’ that in this faithful & furious book–Love, War, Fire, Wind–refuses to desert us.”
