Nick Capozzoli's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: My Sad Captains by Thom Gunn (4/18/2009 10:30:00 PM)

    This 'little' poem has a classical lyrical ethos and stands up to Sappho. The subject, Gunn's recollection of his friends, could easily have lapsed into sentimentality, just as could have Sappho's. Instead, he puts them into an apallingly cold hard orbit in the classical cosmos.

  • POEM: The Man With Night Sweats by Thom Gunn (4/18/2009 10:15:00 PM)

    This poem is very fine, but remains somewhat oblique and mysterious. It helps to know that the man with the night sweats is suffering from AIDS, and not TB or cancer.

  • POEM: The Empty Hills by Yvor Winters (4/18/2009 9:55:00 PM)

    I would call this one of Winter's 'ornate' nostalgic poems, like 'A view of Pasadena From the Hills' or 'The Slow Pacific Swell.' They remind me of Stevens in 'Sea Surface Full of Clouds.' I like the atmospheric sound of these poems, but they also seem a bit too 'artful.' I think that Winters' 'John Sutter' started out in the same mode, but transcended it and became something greater.
