Synopsis
Poetry. The poem "Realization" reads: "Our lives in their daily reference to the actual world/seem to happen there. In retrospect,/their shape is otherwise: actual terms/have little to do with them, cannot describe/what they are. But those are the terms we need to use." The prolific and widely respected poet William Bronk, author of nearly two dozen celebrated books of poetry and prose, succeeds in making "actual terms," terms that actually fit neither objects nor experiences, completely relevant to "our lives in their daily reference," without losing sight of a certain gorgeous and concrete specificity: "mornings are beautiful" (from "Epiphany"). "The brilliant fire of his poems, their blaze of ruthless thought and flawless music achieves the impossible: it forges a world out of the 'worldless'"--Rosmarie Waldrop. Deceptively simple on their surface, these poems ask to be read repeatedly: their quiet voices resonate with a kind of truth that some might argue has gone out of fashion, but which remains, almost inevitably, true.
