Customer Review

on December 19, 2011
You may rather enjoy this book because not only can you hear the poems in your own interior voice, reading silently the pages, but you can pull the CD from the back cover and hear Galway Kinnell's delivery. CD's now are quite cheap to produce and don't add much, if any, to the cost of this 2008 title, Kinnell's llth book of poetry.
Kinnell is a poet of coupled sensuality, which he celebrates in many of these poems, taking his title, "Strong is Your Hold," from another sensual poet, Walt Whitman. The book is dedicated to his younger wife. There is marvelous poem on the painful and tough subject of 9/11, and poems of householder enjoyment, like "Burning the Brush Pile."
Kinnell has the ability to write in clear, simple language that will suddenly move into lyrical phrases or interesting turns of phrase and syntax.
