Editorial Reviews


"The poet offers an account of his personal history as it has painstakingly ordered itself in images. It is the response of a racked but magnanimous mind, the response of a poet. . . . Many of the events [in Notebook] are drawn from our common history, our wars and demonstrations, our assassinations and riots. Throughout burns a passionate intelligence, a conscience, which the reader feels is trustworthy."--William Meredith, The New York Times Book Review

"What Lowell has done is to make poetry difficult again. This has nothing to do with intellectual puzzles: instead, it is the more strenuous creative difficulty of a poetry molded precisely to a powerful and mature talent. [Lowell] appears in Notebook as a very subtle man, unashamedly intelligent, well read and alert, whose poems are at once delicate and piercing."--A. Alvarez, The Observer (London)

Format: Paperback
...of this brilliant volume persists in mind. After all these months spent buried in other books, it's incredible that such lines as "off ering our leathery love/ we're fifty, and free!" stick with me. Lowell's descriptions of souls in Hell is unsettling, while he wears one vital influence (Fugitive John Crowe Ransom), while also tackling world unrest.
I will certainly be rereading this book. If there was ever a doubt as to Lowell's genius, it's cut apart by this and other staggering works. A must read.
