My first introduction to poetic powerhouse Charles Wright I read Littlefoot for a class and found myself compelled despite the fact that I am not for the moment reflecting to much on my age my old age my death or death in general Which is good I think for a girl in her early twenties Still the power of Wright's rhetoric his balance between concrete images and intangible philosophical ideas managed to maintain my interest throughout and my copy is now covered with underlines and notes in the margins I grow a little weary of his naturalistic images at times but that has to do with the numerous poets who have tried those images before him with far less success than it does with any failure of Wright's I expect I'll return to this one in time

And for last instructions on the other side of my own death Following the course of one year the poet's seventieth we witness the seasons change over his familiar postage stamps of soil realizing that we are reflected in them that the true affinity is between writer and subject human and nature one becoming the other as the rive. My first Wright and it was a pretty good one I'm pressed for time as far as reviewing it but I'll just say I liked Wright's use of geography Appalachia which has an appeal to me as well as song Ralph Stanley AP Carter bluegrass and psalm In other words the echoes Wright incorporates into the poem and it's one long poem on approaching mortality do not overpower it This takes a deft touch and Wright delivers From beginning to end it is always the poet's song that the reader hears even with its old timey chorus

Littlefoot A PoemR is like our blood it powers on out of sight out of mind Seeded with lyrics of old love songs and spirituals here we meet solitude resignation and a glad cry that while a return to the beloved earth is impossible all things come from splendor and the urgent uestion that the poet can't help but ask Will you miss me when I'm gone. Powerful meditation on the aging poet Will the landscape like the line come to an end Or will it flow off of the page and on forever
