Here’s a poem for which I spent years searching. My crazy English professor in London made us read it after reading Tess of the D’Urbervilles. (Twist: my last name is Durbeyfield) it’s a bizarre poem by Robert Penn Warren, not about the South at all. (He told me it wasn’t the perfect country and western [poem] because it didn’t say anything about…) now I just read that book by Vikram Seth, which that English professor also loved. The good folks at reddit tomt found it for me.

I call it Literal Dream. Hope you like it.


UPDATE: found the book
