      Wright's poetry transcends itself. This of course sounds like a bunch of "phooey," but Wright's poems do something that so often people try yet fail to do: it captures the paradox of the everyday moment. He can at once sit on a sewer, surrounded by waste, darkness, and despair, and see the beautiful waterfall below, or lie in a hammock, looking at the beauty and marvelous livestock surrounding him and see his failures. The poems have a very distinct style but never go stale. This collection repr [...]

      Wild sadness amid the vicious beauty.Mutterings over the Crib of a Deaf Child"How will he hear the bell at schoolArrange the broken afternoon,And know to run across the coolGrasses where the starlings cry,Or understand the day is gone?"Well, someone lifting curious browsWill take the measure of the clock.And he will see the birchen boughsOutside sagging dark from the sky,And the shade crawling upon the rock."And how will he know to rise at morning?His mother has other sons to waken,She has the s [...]

      James Wright grew up in Martins Ferry, Ohio, not far from where I live. I liked this collection very much.

      I really liked the poems they chose for the "Selected Poems"--I read Collected Poems also but I think this one is better because it features some of Wright's later poems. James Wright is amazing and if I could give over 5 stars for several of his "middle" books (such as Shall We Gather at the River, The Branch Will Not Break, and later To a Blossoming Pear Tree) I certainly would. Ten star books! Yay! I didn't give this book 5 stars because some of Wright's earlier work is maybe a little bit too [...]

      Sad beautiful meditations on life, death, family, hard work, rough men, drunkards, hobos, shy women. Moments of humor,and rueful self-amusement punctuate his work.

      This is the kind of poetry I like. Melancholy, imagistic, a glimpse of hope but not much more. It's beautiful and sad and reads like the various rooms in an art museum.
