Richard Sikens Crush selected as the 2004 winner of the Yale Younger Poets prize is a powerful collection of poems driven by obsession and love Siken writes with ferocity and his reader hurtles unstoppably with him His poetry is confessional gay savage and charged with violent eroticism In the world of American poetry Siken s voice is striking In her introduction to the book competition judge Louise Glck hails the cumulative driving apocalyptic power and purgatorial recklessness of Sikens poems She notes Books of this kind dream big They restore to poetry that sense of crucial moment and crucial utterance which may indeed be the great genius of the form
