    An enjoyable collection but with a weaker and less distinct voice overall than her other work It was written very much in the Mary Oliver style of forgettable if decent mainstream poetry The recurring imagery of a hell on earth in its various manifestations somewhat saves itHighlights Descent to the Valley Immortal Love Eurydice Seizure

    My first collection from the prolific Pulitzer winner Some of the poems are built around self interrogation with a uestion and answer format; several reflect on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice The first and last poems are both entitled “Vita Nova” while another in the middle is called “The New Life” I enjoyed the language of spring in the first “Vita Nova” and in “The Nest” but I was unconvinced by much of what Glück writ

    On the hierarchy of her own work I'd put this collection between The Wild Iris and Seven Ages Not uite her best but not my least favorite either Moments of utter brilliance Moments that felt a little stagey Also an unexpected humor in parts that felt wry after so much of Gluck's trademark intensity from Condo I hate When your own dreams treat you as stupid from Mutable Earth In the bathtub I examine my body We're supposed to do th

    This is my favorite Gluck book of those I've read not nearly all I don't know what my favorite is among those I have not read yet I love the fun she has with the lyric tradition People so often misread her as this uber sincere confessional writer when I think she actually skewers the personal lyric tradition coge

IngLike late Yeats Vita Nova dares large statement By turns stern interlocutor and ardent novitiate Glück compasses the essential human paradox In Vita Nova Louise Glück manages the apparently impossible a terrifying act of perspective that brings into resolution the smallest human hope and the vast forces that thwart and shape it?. It s interesting to read this post MFA Gluck is likely one of my biggest influences to study poetry I read her in college and was absolutely hypnotized I would have given anything to have written those poems Now ten years post grad school and five books later I re read it to see how I d feel Many poems still spoke deeply to me in all their haunting sparseness in their isolating world of doom and wonder And yet I feel like if I were to write like this I d be treated like a joke She uses so many abstractions she freuently talks about intangible things like the soul or the heart which grad school trained out of me as cliche Sometimes the metaphors seem too easy a bird building a nest in a barren place becomes a metaphor for survival There s never any narrative it s rooted solely in emotion another thing workshops basically demanded I stop doing They kept saying but what s the context But what s at stake And yet and yetwhere would I be had these poems not entered my life when they did And how and why do they still sometimes strike like a gong That being said I met Gluck while I was in grad school and nearly cried telling her how much she meant to me and she was really cold she just looked at me and said anne with an e or not And then signed my book and said next without even looking at me again
