    Charles Boyer's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: Bus Stop by Donald Justice (8/6/2015 6:59:00 AM)

      I like the understatement and repetition, turning an everyday sight into something haunting and haunted.

    • POEM: Bread And Wine by Friedrich Holderlin (3/25/2013 12:30:00 PM)

      This is only the first stanza of a much longer poem. Where's the rest of it?

    • POEM: At The Fishhouses by Elizabeth Bishop (12/21/2012 6:08:00 AM)

      Amazing poem. It seems to me it's about reverence paid to the things of the world so attentively that the world is transformed or offers up the possibility of some sort of transcendence as symbolized by the ocean, a baptism in the essence of the world or its elemental foundation that in turn transforms us. See how the animal of the seal and the human are reconciled with the music? The water burns like the fires of purgatory, the water burns on the tongue like a harsh communion wafer, the world offers up only rock breasts from which to nurse, only a transcendence caught in time, but all of this is what we need and what sustains us and gives us hope.
