The Real Subject: Queries and Conjectures of Jacob Delafon with Sample Poems

4.67 of 5 stars 4.67  ·  rating details  ·  15 ratings  ·  2 reviews
Not exactly a novel and not really a poem, though it contains some verses and is not without characters, this work describes a man late in life who has gotten around and who’s thought about what he has seen and heard. He is a unique geezer, whose trains of thought seem often on tracks without station or schedule.

The real subject is its subjectlessness. I don't really understand the "sample poems" and what are they samples of but I kind of, maybe realized that they are not Keith's poems but Jacob's and then it kind of makes sense. Not the best Keith Waldrop book I've read but still retaining a sort of Waldropian questioning.
