    Merwin is Magic

    I am a poetry lover and got introduced to Merwin through a reading on the Writer's Almanac and an interview of WS on NPR.

    This work is a capstone and an elegant tapestry of a man embracing life in later years - reflecting back to remembered scenes and relationships and writing forward to his own demise.

    Merwin is neither nostalgic nor sentimental but his words paint real pictures that draw on universal human experiences as filtered through his own life.

    Read slowly and enjoy as meditation.

    WS - thanks for letting us in!

    Why I'm Into This Book

    A few months ago I was reading Merwin's Collected Poems qand I enjoyed the experience. I was not, however, expecting a new collection. Then I heard Terry Gross interview the author on Fresh Aire and was charmed. I rushed right out to The King's English (a grand independent bookshop in Salt Lake City) and snapped it up. I'm reading it now. I don't know why, but Merwin's poems bring out a deep resonance in my voice when I read them aloud--a very different voice for me. I'll post a more thoughtful review later. I'm looking forward to a slow and joyous read.
