Synopsis
The Oblivion Ha-Ha, a collection of sixty recent poems by James Tate, exemplifies his chosen style, and all its liabilities. Laconic, subtle, anesthetized, Tate's work depends on the distorted image, on words that enact disturbing leaps.... The metaphor becomes a clever joke, where things appear as other things; what I find unnerving about all this is that the precision of symbolism has broken down, the clarity that graced its former usage tempered by ennui. Tate's pose is largely cynical, the voice in his poems casual, bored.
