    • POEM: Campo Di Fiori by Czeslaw Milosz (7/3/2007 6:53:00 AM)

      I agree with the comment by Marcus Weyland i. Although CAMPO DI FIORI is one of the celebreated poems by Milosz, it is not as great as A POOR CHRSITIAN LOOKS AT THE GHETTO
      or POEM FOR THE END OF THE WORLD. The poem in question makes a fairly obvious statement about our general indifference to the suffering of others. He describes himself as a ' Jew of the Old Testament, ' ('one of the uncircumsized' who stood idly by while his fellowmen perished in the Holocaust.

    • POET: Larry Levis (7/31/2005 7:40:00 AM)

      Who published Larry Levis?

      The first poem (Anastasia.....) is quite remarkable. Only a major poet could sustain something of this length and complexity.

      Surely Levis has a following. Yet, as a poet who has been writing and publishing for many years, I have never heard of him! (Until now, thanks to one of your members.)
