    James Frederick's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: I Wrung My Hands by Anna Akhmatova (11/11/2008 5:29:00 PM)

      this poem is so good.

      i usually like complex poems, with riddles of successive words like simic writes. but this one is touching in its simplicity. it has one potent word-combination: 'astringent sadness'. i think the poem is punctuated really well, also.

    • POEM: Dutch Mistress by Joseph Brodsky (11/11/2008 2:42:00 PM)

      'Morning enters the premises with a coroner's
      punctuality, puts its ear
      to the ribs of a cold radiator, detects sub-zero:
      the afterlife has to start somewhere.'

      What a harsh way to imagine a day beginning (beginning with the end) . Sometimes it is true.

    • POEM: At The Window by Paul Eluard (11/10/2008 12:09:00 AM)

      I love this line: 'There was a time when I seemed to understand nothing. My chains floated on the water'.

      I take it to mean that the heavy responsibility and depth of being human was just automatic for him; without knowing how, he floated along despite his weight. I feel it would be wise to examine ones weight—to learn how to speak of ones own depth.
