I admired what my students were writing, but I think their improvement doesn't directly result from me but from being in a class, being with each other.

About Thom Gunn

Did you know about Thom Gunn?

 . "But my life" he wrote "insists on continuities — between America and England between free verse and metre between vision and everyday consciousness. One could hardly ask for more.

Thom Gunn (29 August 1929 – 25 April 2004) born Thomson William Gunn was an Anglo-American poet who was praised both for his early verses in England where he was associated with The Movement and his later poetry in America even after moving toward a looser free-verse style. He won numerous major literary awards. After relocating from England to San Francisco Gunn who became openly gay wrote about gay-related topics—particularly in his most famous work The Man With Night Sweats in 1992—as well as drug use sex and topics related to his bohemian lifestyle.
