Read A New Selected Poems to catch Galway Kinnell's myriad fine-tunings of poems decades old; read it for the pleasure of watching his early formalism blossom into. I've been savoring this book at the rate of a poem per month since my daughter gave it to me. (Don't ask how many bookmarks are propped up beside my be. Gallway Kinnell's anthology is a tour de force of free verse. Kinnell speaks in an unstilted, vernacular voice that requires no academic dissection. The poems are rife with sensory description and rich with apt and original metaphor.

Contains poems from earlier works selected as representative of his poetry by the author, who has revised many of the selections for this book

I remember as well as one can after 43 years when Galway Kinnell gave a poetry reading at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I was stunned, not just by his reading, but more by the poetry. I went immediately to the Centicore Bookstore and bought what they had available at the time, I think Body Rags.

This collection affirms in my mind that he wrote some of the finest verse during the last half of the 20th Century. In "The Bear" he reveals the unity of all being even as he vividly and grimly describes the awfulness of the way of tracking and killing a bear from the inside out.

In "Little Sleep's-Head Sprouting Hair in the Moonlight" he bares the tender love of a father who sees hope and mortality in the growth of a child.

He writes passionate love poems that feel the bones beneath his lover's face. He weaves himself into nature and nature into his flesh. And his language is real, unadorned eloquence:

"In the human heart
There sleeps a green worm
That has spun the heart about itself,
And that shall dream itself black wings
One day to break free into the black sky."

or again::

"In the forest I discover a flower.
The invisible life of the thing
Goes up in flames that are invisible,
Like cellophane burning in the sunlight.
It burns up. Its drift is to be nothing."

If you only read one collection by Kinnell, this is a great one. But I guarantee it will leave you want to read more.

Trying to find excellent poetry collections by a single author is not always easy. Some such collections have a few excellent poems up front followed by large numbers of pedestrian chaff. In others, the author beats the reader into a quivering blob of protoplasm with a favorite topic such as wringing our hands for the downtrodden blue-collar worker, awakening us to an environment in peril or begging us to appreciate dry humor. Galway Kinnell writes on hugely diverse topics. He throws in original humor at unexpected moments. He writes excellent poem after excellent poem with no need to stack the best ones up front. He spaces out his adult poems as unexpected sprinklings of spice. My only criticism of his work suggests his adult poems seem a bit too explicit and biological for poetry.

Excellent!
There is always the seriousnes of the endeavor in Kinnell's poetry. The poet aware that he is a poet. When something springs to life for Kinnell you can feel its pulse in his lines. His tendency to make things larger than they are -- to resonate culturally -- is a mixed result. At times too much aware that he is writing like Galway Kinnell. But when he hits the mark, he prevails.
