Each year the British literary magazine, The High Window, publishes lengthy critical pieces addressing featured UK and American poets. Those articles commonly comprise an in-depth review of the featured poet’s most recent title, together with representative selections from that most recent title and from the poet’s earlier works. The High Window‘s Featured UK Poet for the spring of 2022 is Jude Nutter and I was privileged to be asked to write a lengthy assessment of Nutter’s newest title, Dead Reckoning, released by Salmon Poetry in 2021.
That in-depth review, and Nutter’s brilliant poem, “Disco Jesus and the Wavering Virgins in Berlin, 2011”, were published in The High Window on February 13, 2022, and can be read online by clicking here. In a future issue, The High Window will republish several poems from Nutter’s earlier titles, Pictures of the Afterlife (Salmon Poetry, 2002), The Curator of Silence (Notre Dame University Press, 2006), I Wish I Had a Heart Like Yours, Walt Whitman (Notre Dame University Press, 2009). I highly commend all of Jude Nutter’s poetry to the discerning reader.
