detached longer poems. Orchestrates classical iambic, with odd
band-concert solos for cornet. Prefers simple, unrhyming, relaxed
stanza forms. An American Pope without curia or malice. His Collected Poems makes a big book, better whole, a compendium
rather than an addendum of its parts, a book to squirm around in.
Looking down his rearyard vistas he wrote to Santayana, an
Old Philosopher In Rome:
"On the threshold of heaven, the figures in the street
Become the figures of heaven, the majestic movement
Of men growing small in the distances of space,
Singing, with smaller and still smaller sound,
Unintelligible absolution and an end—. . .
Total grandeur of a total edifice,
Chosen by an inquisitor of structures. . ."
And the book ends, echoing its vision, "like
A new knowledge of reality."
