UPC: 680160638215. 9 x 12 inches. Text: Alan Dugan. Alan Dugan. Poems Seven, (c)Alan Dugan, published by Seven Stories Press, New York.
The poetry of Pulitzer Prize winner Alan Dugan struck a chord with Matheson, who notes a certain contradiction in the poems and in his own writings - an emotional directness combined with complexity. Matheson chose seven Dugan poems, which span decades, in answering a 2004 commission by Carnegie Hall through the Weill Music Institute, and also chose the Pierrot ensemble to convey his impressions.
