when i first discovered him, i read everything i could find by him. i found his poetry delightful, clever, funny and sometimes quite touching.

as i tend to do after i get into a writer (or any kind of artist), i burnt out on him and felt a 'backlash' and saw him as inconsequential light verse.

the 'truth' is in between the extremes, of course.
