Poems 1962-2012 by Louise Glück


it's the astonishment of Louise Glück’s poetry that it resists collection. With each successive e-book her drive to depart in the back of what got here ahead of has grown extra fierce, the force of her gaze fixed on what has yet to be imagined. She invented a sort to house this want, the e-book-period series of poems, like a landscape observed from above, a unique with lacunae beginning onto the unspeakable. The reiterated yet perpetually transfigured components on this landscape—Persephone, a copper beech, a parents and sister, a lawn, a husband and son, a horse, a canine, a field on fireplace, a mountain—consistently emerge and reappear with the darkish energy of the inevitable, shot thru with the bright facet of things new-made.    
          From the outset (“Come here / Come here, baby”), Gluck’s voice has addressed us with misleading simplicity, the poems in strains so transparent we “don't see the intervening fathoms.” 

From throughout the earth’s
sour shame, coldness and barrenness

my friend the moon rises:
she is gorgeous tonight, but if is she no longer beautiful?

To read these e-books in combination is to consider the governing paradox of a existence lived in the frame and of the paintings wrested from it, the only fated to die and the other to bear.
