Review of "E.H." by John Koethe

"E.H." by John Koethe was offered by's Poem-A-Day on September 20, 2013.  The poet reveals in his notes that he was inspired by Earnest Hemingway (pictured) (hence the title) and also by a character in a Sondheim play.  The first stanza muses about Hemingway, his love for alcohol, and his compulsion to write.  The second stanza introduces the Sondheim character, a pathetic loser.  The third apparently is autobiographical.
