Format: Paperback
It`s very strange that no one has written a review of this book before.
In my opinion this is one of Brautigan`s best volume of poems. It may be
a little uneven in quality like he himself says in the preface, but when it
has been read through it leaves the reader with a wholeness seldom
felt with books of poetry. He wrote the poems when staying in Tokyo,
and he uses efficiently allusions from Japanese poetry, but first and
foremost the poems are very sincere behind the often playful surface.
In fact feelings of sadness are the main undertones. Brautigan loved
the Greek Anthology of poems, and one of the best poems in the book
is a brilliant reworking of a poem by Sappho. But this is no East Coast
poetry, which may explain at least partly why it is so very underrated.
It's very far from the precious complexity of most of "university" poetry.
But some day Brautigan will be recognized as the unique genius he was.
