Local Time

In this sixth collection of poems, “Local Time,” Dunn continues his theme of survival, but with almost no belief left in himself as a magician, and the result is a book which might seem disappointing to his readers who loved the richness of his earlier poems. Even William Matthews, an admirer and friend of Dunn, writes in his blurb on the back of the book, “It is not that Stephen Dunn writes in ‘Local Time’ with less assurance, charm or force than marked his earlier work, but that he has engaged his preoccupations.”
