About this title


Book by Goldbarth, Albert

From Library Journal:

Goldbarth's discursive poems juxtapose personal incident, scientific fact, cultural history, and metaphysical speculation. Because his intelligence is wide-ranging, they are never less than interesting. When Goldbarth can fuse fact and speculation with feelingas in "Knees/Dura-Europos," a powerful though poorly titled meditation on the role of suffering given greater resonance by the historical contexthis poems succeed. When they fail, as does "Problem Solving," it is because the emotional center of the poem (in this case, feelings about the birth of a child) becomes lost among the ideas and associations brought to bear on it. Luckily, Goldbarth succeeds more often than not, making this a notable addition to his rapidly expanding body of work. For most collections. Lawrence Rungren, Bedford Free P.L., Mass.
