Walcott is a great poet, but I just can´t make it through Omeros, Walcott´s Homerian epic, and though I do say he´s a bit too ambitious, what I really should be saying is that I´m not. Which is why I enjoyed Ploughshares. Bite size pieces of poetry from Walcott´s own stash of personal faves. Old standards like Dove, Tate, Brodsky, and Heaney rub pages with lesser known poets like Teresa Cader, Sue Owen, and Marie Howe, whom I found captivating, some awesome work by these women, among the most provacative and confrontational I´ve ever read.
