OVER THE PAST several years, unburying forgotten poets has become something of a trend in the publishing world, and a number of the significant writers who’ve been excavated are gay. Graywolf Press’s Re/View series, edited by Mark Doty, has reintroduced the work of key figures like James White and Thomas James to a new and appreciative readership. The most recent addition to this revived canon of lost gay poets is Dunstan Thompson.
