As someone who had read all three of these books, I can say that this review is less than accurate, and reflects a surface vs a deep reading of the poetry in these collections. Rummel's poetry is far from redundantly sad, Kysar's work (especially the poem cited) addresses the guilt and awareness of privilege, not the avoidance of it, and Le's poetry, while spare, is far from flat or clumsy. A quick skim of these books might leave these impressions, but real engagement with them would not. A disappointing lack of engagement with these works is evident in this review.
