Abeling a book of poetry as read That s not ow a book of poetry is appreciated It s not the simple act of opening to page one reading each page in a linear fashion then putting it back on the shelf or in this case closing the Kindle Poetry is something that one must refer back to again and again The images sit in the back of the mind waiting to be recalled again Then when the mood strikes you jump to the bookcase and frantically flip the pages to find that image once again to find that perfect phrase that lucid expression that just sits there l Who among us as not dreamt in moments of ambition of the miracle of a poetic prose musical without rhythm and rhyme supple and staccato enough to adapt to the lyrical stirrings of the soul the undulations of dreams and sudden leaps of consciousnessContrary to popular belief I ad never read Baudelaire until now I ve trusted Walter Benjamin and lately Calasso to provide me with a well informed ethos about this central figure There are many concerns that this is the literature of the young to which I shout absurd This is the lettres of the Absolute the eternally curious Below the bile there is a um of sensitivity Behind
