A Howard Nemerov Reader (Howard Nemerov) pdf, epub, doc

I think I am just not ready for this poet.Perhaps later, perhaps never.Edward Hirsch's description and selection of poems (end of The Blue Swallow and Einstein & Freud & Jack) in Poet's Choice is wonderfully attractive.There are some masterful, beautiful, haunting, and insightful poems in Nemerov's collection.But somehow most of them just don't quite resonate with me.They don't stick in my mind; I don't think of them later.Even when reading, I do not empathize with the dark view here. There is a quote in Poet's Choice which is apt, "I cried because life is hopeless and beautiful."Nemerov writes to his wife, "Fading, the flesh delineates the bone/ As surely, certainly, as autumn leaves// Describe a tree when they resume the earth."Not exactly the romance I currently find charming.There is a prudishness in his poems The Ecstasies of Dialectic (in which men are infected by a whore) and The Goose Fish (in which young lovers are faced with a dead fish) or perhaps I missed his point.More generally, I wonder if part of the darkness is his humor and I'm simply not getting it.Maybe in a few years.
