    PDF David Ferry È PDF Bewilderment New Poems and Translations PDF/EPUB ¿ È manga books.co bewilderment ebok, poems free, translations download, Bewilderment New pdf, Poems and kindle, New Poems and epub, Bewilderment New Poems and Translations PDFDavid Ferry has a mastery of rhythm and meter that makes his translations of classical verse feel very right The same rhythms permeate his original verse; sometimes that works but sometimes I'm left wondering why dactyls? Why??? Some of these poems set up an interesting conceit or exploration of their topic but fail to explore it enough or conclude in a satisfying way Narcissus Others wander around too much before getting to the point Lake Water Poems with fewer than five words seem like an indulgence a less famous poet couldn't get away with unless those words carried shattering insight which these do not Untitled At the interesting end of the spectrum The Offering of Isaac a translation of a translation of a translation is really excellent Brunswick Maine Early Winter 2000 is searingly effective at transmitting its emotions The Reading Arthur Gold's Poem series are an interesting experiment in literary criticism in verse a very Horatian exploit th
