    Henry James's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: Especially When The October Wind by Dylan Thomas (9/4/2016 12:19:00 AM)

      So much a Welsh poet; though his poems were written in English, to me they cry to be read by a Welshman (who is not Richard Burton with his dramatic inclinations) .
      I was drawn to the poems of Dylan Thomas for several reasons but one I cannot ignore nor would want to is his use of language in some unorthodox ways and the bringing of poetry to ordinary things by breaking the common cliches in half and sliding them into a different order (the man in the wind and the west moon) .
      This poem almost begins halfway into a thought without a clue as to its beginning and paints pictures of things, some of which I recall from my own experiences (with fists of turnips punishes the land) .
      Perhaps a person must be Welsh, or close to Welsh, to do this in such a way that it draws the eye but is only truly fulfilled by being spoken.

    • POEM: Golden Slumbers Kiss Your Eyes by Thomas Dekker (6/22/2011 11:42:00 AM)

      If people come here only to read the poem that inspired the Beatles' song, then they might also take the time to look at other English poets of the Elizabethan age, which I believe to be the golden age of English poetry.
