Summary: "Known as the "Pope of Greenwich Village," Jose Garcia Villa had a special status as the only Asian poet among a group of modern literary giants in 1950s New York that included W. H. Auden, Tennessee Williams, and a young Gore Vidal. But beyond his exotic ethnicity, Villa was a global poet who was admired for "the reverence, the raptness, the depth of concentration in [his] bravely deep poems" (Marianne Moore). Doveglion (Villa's pen name - for dove, eagle, and lion) contains Villa's collected poetry, including rare and previously unpublished material."--BOOK JACKET.
