Who can say what the world is The worldis in flux, thereforeunreadable, the winds shifting,the great plates invisibly shifting and changing 2.
Dirt Fragmentsof blistered rock On whichthe exposed heart constructsa house, memory the gardensmanageable, small in scale, the bedsdamp at the sea s edge 3.
As one takes inan enemy, through these windowsone takes inthe world here is the kitchen, here the darkened study.

When you fall in love, my sister said,it s like being struck by lightning.
She was speaking hopefully,to draw the attention of the lightning.
I reminded her that she was repeating exactlyour mother s formula, which she and Ihad discussed in childhood, because we both feltthat what we were lookin I preface this by saying I am a huge fan of Louise Gluck s poetry she d have to fall a long way for me to not consider her breathtaking, amazing, articulately intense a creative flame Averno is no exception to her previous work I have read.
Averno again, elegant, emotive writing that frequently looks sparse upon the page and yet is dense with meaning, possibility, passion I was taken by her Persephone poems, in particular, A Myth of Devotion p 58 He Hades wants to say, I love you, nothing can hurt youbut he thinksthis is a lie, so he says in the endyou re dead, nothing can hurt youwhich seems to hima promising beginning, true.
If you are looking for sweetness and light, Gluck is not the girl for you, but if you have a fondness for edges and darkness and things that make a heart ache, her poetry is a definite must Averno is as bracing and clean and as perfect as the stark scherzos of winter evoked by Louise Gl ck The poet explores, with moments of splintering incision, the myths of Persephone, the difficulty of reconciling the dying body to an earth that itself seems at once death bound headed for winter yet renewable headed for summer , and the strange regions that the soul fitfully inhabits in a world devoid of comfort or faith weren t we necessary to the earth This redoubtable collection gives and re gives with successive readings, not unlike the gift of love that Gl ck describes as The gift of the self,that is without limit Without limit, though it recurs.
Let me begin Let me say that I do not know poetry I cannot separate the good from the bad with any real authority What I do like and do admire is based entirely on impression and appreciation, surprise I like poetry though And it comes to be as something I feel I must read, it comes in waves of desire and ignorance So when I talk about this collection of poetry I cannot pretend that I have much to say which is deserving of your attention.
Louise Gluck is one of those names in American poetry that is said, mostly, with admiration She is the author of a great many collections, the winner of a great many prizes This collection nearly received one of the major ones, but lost out to another poet I have read that other book, but having read this collection I can only suggest that the decision to award somebody else was the righ PrismLouise Gluck1.

Highly recommended Louise Gluck, Averno Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2006 I ve never been entirely sure what to think of the work of Louise Gluck Averno, however, has certainly tipped the balance into the dislike bucket When she is good, she is very, very good when she is bad, however, you get stuff like this You girls, my mother said, should marrysomeone like your father That was one remark Another was, There is no one like your father Prism As pithy as the wisdom may be, the poetry is entirely absent I d expect this sort of thing in a run of the mill memoir, not in a volume from a Pulitzer Prize winner On the other hand, as I said, when she s good, etc Given a strong image and a slight difference in the way she works with repetition, she can craft some really great stuff You g Averno Is A Small Crater Lake In Southern Italy, Regarded By The Ancient Romans As The Entrance To The Underworld That Place Gives Its Name To Louise Gl Ck S Tenth Collection In A Landscape Turned Irretrievably To Winter, It Is A Gate Or Passageway That Invites Traffic Between Worlds While At The Same Time Resisting Their Reconciliation Averno Is An Extended Lamentation, Its Long, Restless Poems No Less Spellbinding For Being Without Conventional Resoltution Or Consolation, No Less Ravishing For Being Savage, Grief Stricken What Averno Provides Is Not A Map To A Point Of Arrival Or Departure, But A Diagram Of Where We Are, The Harrowing, Enduring Present Averno Is A National Book Award Finalist For Poetry have you ever felt like it s a need to revisit a book i ve only read this book in february but i already missed it so much the first part of the poem called averno hit home at the most personal level ever, considering i ve taken care of my old family members before i rally people in my circle of friends to read this so that i could babble about it tbh I m writing my senior thesis on this book Yes, I like it a lot read 25 times done with my thesis so this book is going far away for awhile.
