Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"An American original and even stronger than that, these last four decades, till these poems anchored by their extreme facts and debris-like assembling remind us of who this man Seidman has always been becoming, this maker made by his irreducible materials." —Joseph McElroy --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dorothy Josephs on August 2, 2005
Format: Paperback
Hugh Seidman's poetry is rich with scientific understanding and a knowledge of the sweep of history and the cosmos. He is more deserving of recognition than many poets of our time who have received more. His is a quiet and sparse voice, not redundant with words, but musical with economic expression, sometimes elliptical, but always ultimately accessible when one follows his intelligence to where it leads us on "the other side of the poem." He takes us to where mystery exists in reality. There is nothing soft-headed or occult herein, but the blunt reality of our lives as we seem like aliens trapped on earth and ruling it, often poorly, with greed, obsession, and fallacy. Seidman is worth reading, and his work will make you want to be that somebody who stands up and sings. This is a poet of truth and conscience, who thinks deeply and sings intelligently, one with whom we can share our wounded and struggling humanity.
