The article features poet J. Gordon Coogler and his literary contributions. Information on the family background of Coogler is presented.

Coogler eventually became a national straight-faced joke, as reviewers and editors who were well aware of his awfulness emerged into a conspiracy to greet each Coogler effort with rapturous praise.
