Iron Wheel

Overview


The poems in Iron Wheel are hard won, the product of the clash of cultures: Southern, religious, gay. Miller achieves an intense, disturbing, and singular poetic voice, capable of tenderness, but undaunted when forced to confront the harsh, often violent realities of contemporary life in the South.

Editorial Reviews

Thomas Gunn
I particularly like Greg Miller's combination of the awkward and unfinished in feeling and tone with the "finish" of his language and versification. It's a difficult balance to achieve, but he manages it magnificently. -- Thom Gunn
