Example text

Bukowski interwove the abstract and the concrete to capture the impossibility of communication and the essential insanity of social and artistic convention. The majority of the poems, however, seem selfindulgent and pointlessly crass. Having gained recognition from the early chapbooks, Bukowski assumed a surer direction. It Catches My Heart in Its Hand culls some of the best from the early chapbooks and adds many new pieces. ” The danger of sanctifying art receives a lighter handling in “The Talkers,” which is both a critique of art for art’s sake and a renunciation of those who would hide behind abstraction and pretense.

In another poem from this collection, “What the Child Sees,” Corso depicts the child as “innocently contemptuous of the sight” of old age’s foolishness. ” What the poet, like the child, perceives as pleasurable is the immediate, sensual experience, such as the smell of new shoes, not the abstractions of dried-up old lies. The sadness at the root of this pleasure, however, is a sadness that appears in much of Corso’s poetry, evoked by the perennial reality of death. Mindfield The 1989 collection Mindfield is a compilation of Corso’s favorite poems throughout his career, along with new poems.

Bone Pallace Ballet is divided into five sections that outline his life, from recollections that romanticize his drunken youth as a time when there was a “feeling of/ joy and gamble in/ the air” (“Beeting on the Muse”) to the final section presenting poems that take stock of his life and square-off with death. Open All Night, like the collection of his poems titled What Matters Most Is How Well You Walk Through the Fire, is an expansive volume full of the grizzled mutterings that readers have come to expect from Bukowski: Former lovers, binge drinking, disillusioned souls, and the racetrack are well represented.
