Earthy, Masculine, Lusty Poems
Galway Kinnell is one of the few truly masculine men writing poetry in America today. His connection to nature, to the natural world, to his own feelings, his sense of wonder and awe are all admirably expressed in his poetry. His fatherly experience and emotions, his role as lover of a woman, his dwelling on this glorious and muddy planet are given full fruition in this one volume which contains the best of his output over many years. He is unique among American poets and stands with the best of our contemporary male poets: C.K. Williams, Robert Hass, Amiri Baraka, Stephen Dunn, Philip Levine, James Wright.... He's among the poets of today who will be read and read again in years to come. Kinnell's poems do not sacrifice poetic clarity and guts for effete intellect and solipsistic experiment. These are poems of good craft, originality and accessibility.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
