I wonder if Merwin had not had all the chance opportunities in his early life, if he would have become the man he was. His seems to be a life well-lived.

Merwin's poems have a simplicity of respect and language that echoes from the page, and I found the sequences here to be especially powerful poems that I look forward to revisiting. The shorter poems often had lovely language, but not the level of emotional impact the longer ones achieved. Merwin is a poet I'll read and re-read, though, and gladly recommend.

Much too dependent on mythology and arbitrary author-determined symbolism for my taste. Also, would it kill you to use some punctuation? If I spend all my time trying to figure out where the commas and the semicolons go, I don't have any time to sift for meaning...or even a bit of crisp diction amid all the muddled language.

Merwin has an odd style that at times bores me and drives me nuts and then really fascinates and captures me. I especially like his descriptions of people and the ways they speak. So often he's elaborating on landscapes and histories and plants, but when he zeroes in on an intimate moment with another person, he's really powerful..
