Thanks for this, Steven. I was barely aware of Philip Schultz before, and enjoyed his poetry, and his story.

The holistic, image-based cognitive strategy of (most) dyslexics can bestow unusual creative ability (I thought he was going to say more about that), and the apparent irony of a poet being dyslexic is quite satisfying. FG Lorca, WB Yeats and Dylan Thomas were each thought to have been dyslexic.

Quite possibly, his father, the "failure" about whom he wrote the poem, is the parent from whom he inherited the dyslexia; his father may have unwittingly passed to his son the potential to be a Pulitzer prize-winning poet.

Hi Diane,

I like what you said. The word redemption comes to mind in regards to the potential having
been actualized.
