    1. I may skip a detailed review on this, simply because poetry reviews are a real ass kicker for me Like work But, that said, it deserves one Wright is one best poets I ve read and I ve read A LOT One reason for this is that he s SO American in his settings and voice If you like Whitman, you should like this guy But for me he speaks directly to the post WW 2 American consciousness Hell, updating things a bit, he speaks directly to the post financial meltdown consciousness Wright s America is a dea [...]

    2. Usually, as you read a book, you learn and about it But sometimes, as you read a book, you learn and about yourself.Such was the case with James Wright s Collected Poems Containing poems, as it does, from early in Wright s career to late, you watch his progression from formal poet accomplished in rhyme, to freelance poet extraordinaire, to experimental poet as he listens for fate s footsteps.What did I learn I m not a fan of form poetry or of rhyming poetry Subtle rhymes, yes, but rhyme sche [...]

    6. i don t dare finish reading any single poem in this collection the words are of such precision they are like incantations if i follow them through to the end, my life will be required to change i will be altered, perhaps transformed.
