Bill Grace's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: The Space Heater by Sharon Olds (4/20/2016 12:03:00 AM)

    Robert Leslie was a student of Victor Frankl in Vienna. His book from. that experience is: Jesus and Logotherapy. (Abingdon) Dr. Leslie shared one day with us in class a session he had witnessed where Frankl had sacrificed his dignity to make a great therapeutic interdiction. Olds celebrates this same power in poetic form. Could it not at least be possible that this is the great power of the cross? The hitch is that we must free ourselves from bourgeois convention to even begin to apprehend such an act be it from Olds's therapist or from a Victor Frankl. Bill Grace in Texas

  • POET: Kenneth Patchen (6/3/2015 12:14:00 AM)

    The Deer and the Snake is a poem discovered as an undergraduate that has haunted me for close to fifty years such is its beauty and depth. Bill Grace It is here one click away.

  • POEM: Dulce Et Decorum Est by Wilfred Owen (4/2/2015 10:58:00 PM)

    He (Owen) was offered the relative safety of a position that he refused. His war poetry is the absolute top of this genre. He was killed but his death more than the millions of others helps us to personalize a loss not only to literature and England but to all of us. I can only think of the phrase by Lincoln: so solemn a sacrifice. Bill Grace
