Ebook description:

“The concept of verse, of poetry, has at all times, throughout forty years spent working primarily in prose, stood at my elbow, as a standing invitation to the best type of verbal train—probably the most satisfying, probably the most archaic, probably the most elusive of crucial management. In lodge rooms and airplanes, on seashores and Sundays, at junctures of non-public happiness or its reverse, poetry has comforted me with its hope of permanence, its packaging of flux.” Thus John Updike writes in introducing his Collected Poems . The earliest poems right here date from 1953, when Updike was twenty-one, and the final had been written after he turned sixty. Almost all of these printed in his 5 earlier collections are included, with some revisions. Arranged in chronological order, the poems represent, as he says, “the thread bottom of my life’s fading tapestry.” An ample set of notes in the back of the e book discusses a number of the hidden threads, and expatiates upon quite a lot of wonderful factors. Nature—tenderly intricate, ruthlessly impervious—is a continuing and ambiguous presence in these poems, together with the social commentary one would anticipate in a novelist. No event is just too modest or too day by day to excite metaphysical marvel, or to impress a lyrical ingenuity of language. Yet even the wittiest of the poems are rooted to the bottom of expertise and reality. “Seven Odes to Seven Natural Processes” try and explicate the bodily world with a directness seldom tried in poetry. Several longer poems—“Leaving Church Early,” “Midpoint”—use autobiography to proclaim the fundamental strangeness of existence
