The Mud Actor

really liked it 4.0  ·  Rating Details ·  9 Ratings  ·  3 Reviews
The Mud Actor finds its most powerful images in the poems of childhood and in the moving poem, "The Memory of Hiroshima" . . . Cassells' ultimate testimony to the human spirit. The cumulative nature of the book is powerful, and allows us to agree with the poet at the end that 'Everything in life is resurrection'.

Supposedly his collection of erotic/spiritual poems, I think? This volume is okay, but it's not my favorite (Soul Make a Path through Shouting is). But generally, I think he's a keen poet with a beautiful voice that I wish didn't fall out of print so often.

Very readable. The Hiroshima piece is the best.
