James L. White's The Salt Ecstasies--
originally published in 1982, shortly after White's untimely death--has earned a reputation for its artful and explicit expression of homosexual love and desire. In this new edition, with an introduction by Mark Doty and previously unpublished works by White, this invaluable poetry is again available--clear, passionate, and hard-earned. The Salt Ecstasies
is a new book in the Graywolf Poetry Re/View Series, edited by Mark Doty, dedicated to bringing essential books of contemporary American poetry back into print.
