Poetry. In these 52 poems, the author continues the subject of the Vietnam War he began in his 1972 collection, Obscenities. In CHECK POINTS, he reveals, through characters and situations, the essential horror of that experience in a voice full of dark humor that makes it all the more memorable. This new volume incorporates many of the poems in the limited edition chapbook, Raiding a Whorehouse (Adastra Press, 2004). What Stanley Kunitz said of Casey's first book of poems holds true for this new collection as well: "He has had the original insight and the controls to produce a kind of anti-poetry that befits a kind of war empty of any kind of glory."
