first dawnthe strange. No less ravishingor being savage grief stricken What Averno provides is not a map to a point of arrival or departure but a diagram of where we are the harrowing enduring present Averno is a 2006 National Book Award Finalist or Poetr. Averno PoemsThe spirit of psychoanalysis seems to hover over these poems come into ocus most when they touch the world of nature and myth on many world of nature and myth On many They come into most when they touch the world of nature and myth On many they remind the reader of HD except that they The Game Of My Life Gary Ablett My Story fly in a very different direction HD believed in secret patterns behind life and words Gluck s world is sparse on many occasions empty Death is death There it is Accept it Real events uake with the allegorical but only just and whereas HD approached myth with sacred revery Gluck approaches the myth of Persephone with humour Avernus was marked by silence and this is a key component in the method of this book linesall silent and music Dear Nancy fades As Gluck explains in October she is not much interested in Beauty but she knows something about candour These are poems of snow of candour s whiteness of existence srank and chilly light This is what I hate about poetryHa Well I m doneNo really Averno started with significant promise using an established mythos to analogize human growth and the confrontation with death in an evolved secular society She does well with the Persephone poems reminds me of a poem by Wendy Barker in that her poetry tells a somewhat coherent story that transports the reader to the place and allows the reader to become emotionally invested Lines like It is snowing on Earth the cold wind says Persephone is having sex in hell are both concrete and poetic unfortunately Gl ck s other poems all apart without this kind of cohesionThis is where the hate comes in repetition of unnecessary words clich imageryphrasing vague sentences without referentials or referring to abstract concepts long poems that do not possess sufficient st Let me begin Let me say that I do not know poetry I cannot separate the good rom the bad with any real authority What I do like and do admire is based entirely on impression and appreciation surprise I like poetry though And it comes to be as something I Fighting Racism In World War Ii feel I must read it comes in waves of desire and ignorance So when I talk about this collection of poetry I cannot pretend that I have much to say which is deserving of your attentionLouise Gluck is one of those names in American poetry that is said mostly with admiration She is the author of a great many collections the winner of a great many prizes This collection nearly received one of the major ones but lost out to another poet I have read that other book but having read this collection I can only suggest that the decision to award somebody else was the right decisionGluck is an aggressive poet asar as I can tell She writes in staccato phrases that are dark and exacting Her words and phrases bring to mind the abrupt black and whiteness of some mid century art photographer whose work is almost certainly John Rawls famous than their name stark lines separating the areas where the sunalls Pregnant By My Father In Law from the where the shadows take over taut something natural in its way but also ugly in its way like the sheer rockyace of a mountain as it rips itself out Controlled Burn Scarred Hearts 1 from the suffocation of a glacier Louise Gluck s poetry reads like a cryor survival or perhaps like a last sucking in of air before the cold waters drag you into your Unlocking The Secrets Of 2012 forever homeAt times it produces something truly beautiful the sort of poems that one things deserves the National Book Award Like in The Night Migrations This is the moment when you see againthe red berries of the mountain ashand in the dark skythe birds night migrationsIt grieves me to thinkthe dead won t see them these things we depend onthey disappearWhat will the soul door solace thenI tell myself maybe it won t needthese pleasures any maybe just not being is simply enoughhard as that is to imagineAnd sometimes you see that Gluck has a special talent in producing poetry which seems to miss whatever it aims to hit Like in Archaic Fragment or in Blue Rotunda or in Fugue I won t name the title poem even if it also has some lines highlighted in other reviews which either need to stop being or to be reworked extensively That isn t to say that each of these poems is excessively bad though perhaps Archaic Fragment is It is to say that the components that are bad prevent one rom really appreciating the ineness of the parts that are good And maybe you can see in that poem above the hints of the bad writing creeping in and redeemed in that Rain Valley final stanza But maybe that is me thinking her rather direct approach to handling her themes appears at times careless Maybe that is just me who thinks words like dead and time and memory and shadow need to be used sparingly carefully and maybe need to be softened by something else I appreciated theullness of this collection It is a composition that takes themes phrases ideas and develops them as the poems move on so the end product doesn t seem to be a bundle of discrete products that were assembled by some publisher No there was some attention give. Averno is a small crater lake in southern Italy regarded by the ancient Romans as the entrance to the underworld That place gives its name to Louise Glck's tenth collection in a landscape turned irretrievably to winter it is a gate or N to the shaping of this making it a

"Full Work That Thrives When "
work that thrives when as such and weakened by the Our Fight failures which seem to leak into each poem and poison the vision just enough Theirst half of this collection is consistent than the second with gems like October and Landscape and Persephone the Wanderer There are some eually good ones in the second half with Thrush being worthy of a reading or two Take that as you may Saying this is my avourite poetry book is no exaggeration Louise Gluck Averno Farrar Straus and Giroux 2006I ve never been entirely sure what to Think Of The Work Of Louise Gluck of the work of Louise Gluck however has certainly tipped the balance into the dislike bucket When she is good she is very very good when she is bad however you get stuff like this You girls my mother said should marrysomeone like your ather That was one remark Another was There is no one like your Ataturk father Prism As pithy as the wisdom may be the poetry is entirely absent I d expect this sort of thing in a run of the mill memoir not in a volumerom a Pulitzer Prize winner On the other hand as I said when she s good etc Given a strong image and a slight difference in the way she works with repetition she can craft some really great stuff You get on a train you disappearYou write your name on the window you disappearThere are places like this everywhereplaces you enter as a young girlfrom which you never return Averno I ve added and subtracted a star Stranputice Ljubavi from my rating of this book at least twenty times as I ve mulled over how to review it usually depending on which poem I happen to be contemplating at the time While it s obviously a mustor Gluck Mathilde Jensens Frste Gang fans those who are knew to her work should probably start somewhere else the Pulitzer winning The Wild Iris or her best IMO book The House on Marshland Averno is as bracing and clean and as perfect as the stark scherzos of winter evoked by Louise Gl ck The poet explores with moments of splintering incision the myths of Persephone the difficulty of reconciling the dying body to an earth that itself seems at once death bound headedor winter yet renewable headed In Search Of Temple Treasures for summer and the strange regions that the soulitfully inhabits in a world devoid of comfort or Westlake Soul faith weren t we necessary to the earthThis redoubtable collection gives and re gives with successive readings not unlike the gift of love that Gl ck describes as The gift of the selfthat is without limit Without limit though it recurs That Gluck voice Keep trying to understand why it has such a vulnerable authority like someone wielding a dagger then using it to offer you a piece ofruit A voice poised between challenge and cowering distance and closeness indifference and intimacy In Prism it s the daughters assignment to Ms Sql Server Management Studio Third Edition fall in love an improper vaccination leads to passion desire and the searchor love the lover is the stranger in the shock of the Hrvatski Pravopis first dawn There s a lot of attempt at dichotomy of breaking mother lover and daughter into superego id and ego of the soul and the body of good and bad death and life But Gluck often undermines these dichotomies or at least subverts them in Crater Lake it is ironically the body and not death that might have betrayed us by making usear love The title of the collection Averno as well as this particular poem Crater Lake suggests we are on the cusp of things the liminal space of the entranceway to the underworld And The Secret Summer Of L E B for a book based on the myth of Persephone and thus on the earth and the underworld there is so much mention of sky This seems a subversion as well This disorientationeels somehow purposeful as though we like Persepho I preface this by saying I am a huge Invisible Foxes fan of Louise Gluck s poetry she d have toall a long way Islamic Designs With Cdrom for me to not consider her breathtaking amazing articulately intense a
