There s a collection of verse by a great American Poet, Selected Poems 1945 2005 by the late Robert Creeley, and I m obliged to go out and buy it My paperback editions of his books are, sad to say, falling apart with that rare affliction for poetry volumes, poetry books with a cracked spine.It s a fine time to remember Creeley s mastery of the terse lyric poem, a major characteristic in a time when lyric for most writers mean lazy associations, odd line breaks and a verbosity that is about exte [...]
every word and line break distracts the intuitive reader very few words are used it was recommended by one of my professors years ago.
I wanna love Creeley the whole Black Mtn thing I have tried I just don t get his greatness I don t dispute it, I just don t get it.
After reading this collection, I sense both an emotional depth and walls created between writer s firsthand knowledge and reader s curiosity There is a lot of stream of consciousness writing, at times jagged and non sequitorial, and a lot of negative space in his writing that leaves quite a bit of room for the reader s imagination or interpretation to run wild and unguided It s not categorically bad, but it s a little unsettling for me to read writing like this with my current aesthetic I enjoye [...]
Creeley s expert brevity compact lines and stanzas have long fascinated me, so I brought this volume with me to Cambodia to fill up the empty corners of days His brilliance is his ability to pen poems that are spare and mysterious, but somehow always tender I love getting the feeling that Creeley never had any enemies in life, and yet no one ever understood him Can t say I understand all of his poems, but I enjoy damn near every one.
I m not big on reading poetry, especially 20th century works I have to admit, though, that Creeley offers up some thoughtful, well crafted poems I would never have picked this book up had it not been assigned reading, but I found some jewels in it that I enjoyed.
Yesterday I wanted to speak of it The book of poems that changed my life Everything I sought after this, in spirituality and love, was the end of a sentence I read with Creeley God rest his beautiful soul.
Be, for me, like rain
I was first introduced to Creeley by Don Stratton, professor of Jazz Theory at the University of Maine at Augusta, in 1994 Stratton had played with a lot of jazz greats like Charlie Parker, and illustrated the fact that Creeley s work had a lot of the same metric flow as a Parker solo At times extremely obtuse and unwieldly, when you can break through and connect with a poem like Return Quiet as is proper for such places The street, subdued, half snow, half rain,Endless, but ending in the darken [...]

Everyone needs poetry books, just about I just love Creeley s small poems, especially the ones about going places or realizing a small truth without going on and on and waxing and waning and tripping and straining about it Just small, important, worthwhile and sometimes stunning poems Thank you, friend who made me realize this poet
Be wet with a decent happiness.
Only Robert Creeley cuts my hair
my favorite poet.
My all time favorite poetry book I pick it up meaning to read a passage or two, and end up reading for hours.
This book is a constant companion One of the best selections of poems from the best poet can t miss this one
His poetry epitomizes the Black Mountain Poetry Movement, not in any set notions of, or guidelines for, poetry, but within the dichotic nature of his poems.
A good, readable Selected Poems.
Robert Creeley is one of my top favorite poets.
Black Mountain Poets want to feel as though you ve just been let in on a secret Read Creeley.
At his best, Creeley is awesome, but some pieces seem ephemeral.
