Synopsis: The Roundhouse Voices: New and Selected Poems (A Harper colophon book)
From Library Journal:
Dave Smith has attained a position of preeminence among his generation of poets. The impression left by this collection is that of a promiscuous talent, drunk on words and in love with them, if not necessarily using them with clarity or precision. Murky, often violent language contains obscure and agitated sentiments. The best poems are more clearly narrative in nature, and the giddy profusion of word-play is rooted in a structure the reader can apprehend. There is great, and greatly overwritten, excitement in these poems: ``straight into a dawn-silvered web/ where secret spiders spin/ ceaseless as the seasons.'' Later on ``My fingers claw the meat/ of family stillness.'' An appetite for such hyperbole will help in appreciating these poems. Recommended for American poetry collections. Frank J. Lepkowski, Oakland Univ. Lib., Rochester, Mich.
