One to re-read. It's been a while :)Goodreads quotes her: “You have come to the shore. There are no instructions.” If you are interested in poetry, open up some poetry books, and let this be your mantra.
I love Denise Levertov. I've read this book at least 500 times, and nearly every other page has a dog ear.Levertov is an amazing poet with incredible things to say, and I'm so glad she enriched this world with her elegantly honest poetry.
this is my favorite book of poetry of all time. i have based several art pieces on it, and will continue to. i accidentally have the copy from the dave at wsu. shhh.
Where is my life? Where is my life?What have I done with my life? *and so many within themselvestravel to far islands but no oneasks for their story *Grief, have I denied thee?Grief, I have denied thee.[…]Always denial. Grief in the morning, washed awayin coffee, crumbled to a dozen errands betweenbusy fingers.[…]There are hidden corners of the skychoked with the swept shreds, with pain and ashes. Grief,have I denied thee? Denied thee.*You wantedto shout the world to its senses,did you?
A very good collection of Levertov's poetry; fans of Levertov will love this collection. Those who have not yet experienced Levertov's poetry could do worse than starting here.
There are a few poems I liked a lot in this, but overall I had a lot of trouble finding my way into them. Probably going to read "Some Notes on Organic Form" and see if I can get a better hold on them when I'm a few months smarter lol
Levertov can be a little too cold for my taste, but I like this period of her work.
