Landscape at the End of the Century: Poems

Overview

In the language of and for our interior lives, Dunn makes poetry a communal act between the poet and his readers. Dunn's landscape at the end of the century embraces the spectrum of urgencies and obsessions that we live with and for. It's a landscape that we share with citizens and spies, revelers and mourners, women who weep, men who keep secrets, and especially with the poet himself.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Moving outward from the territory of hearth and home he has mapped so well in earlier works, Dunn ( Between Angels ) demonstrates both old and new strengths in this slim, potent volume. A dark abstraction infuses the poems of Part I, as Dunn writes in ``Bringing It Down'' of the man who, observing a jet flying overhead, fantasizes its crashing and his heroism in rescuing survivors. In ``The Man in the Forest,'' a lost man wandering in circles is observed wryly by wild animals that are sure of their place. Part II returns to familiar ground freshly observed, where ``ordinary days of marriage / stretch out like prairie'' (``Epithalamion''); here the poet celebrates ``the ordinary mysteries, women / and men, the broken bridge / between us.'' Rhythmic and insistent, the rousing, lengthy ``Loves''--comprising all of Part III--is a high-spirited, deliciously specific catalogue that ends, ``I love how we go on.'' (Apr.)
Library Journal
In the past, Dunn has been a spokesperson in our struggle with the everyday. His first seven collections have taken an intelligent, charming, and often wry look at the challenges we come up against as we try to live a quiet, normal life. This new volume has a greater range: standing at the edge of a new millennium, Dunn is aware of history, roles, and trends in the greater scheme of things. ``Only a hero/would dare return with the truth.'' Truth is the matter of these poems; particularly, those who want it and those who seem content or even intent on having nothing to do with it. ``Loves,'' a wonderful, uplifting long poem that closes the book, calls our attention to how much we enjoy but so often take for granted. We end up feeling that from this side of the precipice, with what light we have, things don't look so bad. Highly recommended.-- Louis Mc Kee, Painted Bride Arts Ctr., Philadelphia
