Michael Strunge

The UK book publisher Arc has published a book of selected poetry by Michael Strunge, a Danish poet who won great acclaim in the 1980s as a very young man (killed himself at age 26 I think). As for what this poetry is like, well, he's got poems dedicated to the Joy Division singer who killed himself and he had a Rimbaud-complex. A lot of it is very interesting in a hallucinatory, decadent way.
