I will not say the poetry is "bad," "weak," or "forgettable." Rather, there were some good lines among a garble of unrelated ones, poems that ended abruptly, forced enjambments, histrionic endings. I read poem after poem searching for the magnitude I encountered in the poet of Walking to Martha's Vineyard, and I did not find it in this collection.
