The winner of the 2003 Yale Series of Younger Poets competition is Peter StreckfusÃ¢ÂÂs The Cuckoo, chosen by competition judge and Poet Laureate Louise GlÃÂ¼ck. It is GlÃÂ¼ckÃ¢ÂÂs first selection as judge. In this unforgettable, daring first collection, Peter Streckfus offers the reader poems of deep originality and astonishing power. Taking his inspiration from both American and Chinese culture, Streckfus seems an impossible combination of John Ashbery and Ezra Pound. In her Foreword, GlÃÂ¼ck praises StreckfusÃ¢ÂÂs art for its Ã¢ÂÂnonsense and mystery,Ã¢ÂÂ its Ã¢ÂÂmesmerizing beautyÃ¢ÂÂ and Ã¢ÂÂluminous high-mindedness.Ã¢ÂÂ
