Lane's poetry at its most characteristic deals straightforwardly, yet with lush descriptive imagery, with man's rough treatment of his environment and of his fellow human beings. Several of his books are illustrated with his own graphic works. Lane is the brother of the near-legendary poet Red Lane (1936-64) and he edited the Collected Poems of Red Lane (1968). In 1987 Poems Selected and New was published.
