Bibhu Padhi's last comments on poems and poets

  • POET: Dana Gioia (12/20/2013 9:23:00 PM)

    Fantastic. The poems are so quiet- like the things they talk about. And, they fulfill my wish: poems have to be short and strong enough to hold the reader's attention. Congratulations and cheers!

  • POEM: Ancestors by Cesare Pavese (1/14/2008 9:21:00 PM)

    A great one. One returns to it several times and each time one discovers something different, something more. That sadness and nostalgia so typical to the twentieth century European poets runs through the entire poem; it is felt even in its wry humor.

  • POEM: Variations On Nothing by Giuseppe Ungaretti. (1/14/2008 9:12:00 PM)

    A fine, compact poem, revolving around the single metaphor of the 'hour-glass.' Like all Ungaretti poems, this one has also a touch-just that slight touch-of sadness in it-a sadness that I have encountered in non-English poets of the twentieth century alone. I do not think poets in English-speaking countries have tasted that sadness enough to write about it. They are too much occupied with their 'local details' to be able to even experience it. Perhaps two of the few exceptions are the late American poets, William Stafford and Raymond Carver.
