Book by Bell, Marvin
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This generous volume represents over 20 years' work from eight col lections and includes three uncollect ed poems plus 15 new ones. While Bell's style has varied, his themes re main constant: memory, art, identity. His main interest is ideas as discov ered in and extended through a rich panoply of language. Since his beau tiful These Green-Going-to-Yellow (LJ 12/15/81), Bell has turned increas ingly to nature, thereby opening up his verse and balancing a tendency to control/create a poem by force of will. While his predominant tone is a moral seriousness, Bell is often a playful poet whose wordplay can dazzle as well as illuminate, whose discursive wit finds fertile ground in nature: "It is true that my terrain is ignorance,/ . . . that solace is as close as I may ever come to good ness."Robert Hudzik, P.L. of Cincinnati & Hamilton Cty.
