Read from November 13 to December 19, 2011

A reread, I didn't like it any more than the previous read. Mitchell writes about classical themes, her poetry rooted in the smokey and brutish and not the lyric. In these poems is the anxious atmosphere of the cave at Delphi. You long to walk outside in the blue air where maids gambol and someone is trilling a pipe.
