it was ok
Read in September, 2007

I really wanted to like Stanley Kunitz. Many of my favorite poets and past teachers cite him as a mentor, so I thought I'd like him...But most of these poems struck me as resting purely on the surface of beautiful language. Many images seem to be superficial, not the sort of deep images that I crave in poetry. Do I need to read them over and over until I get at something? Please don't hate me, fellow GoodReads friends/Kunitz lovers!
