  • Patrick Leigh Fermor and the Gifts of Friendship
    • Abstract: Letters and talk should always be free and reckless among friends . . .Patrick Leigh Fermor, the writer and war hero who died in 2011 at age 96, was a figure from another world. He never lived among hypnotizing computer screens, "smart" phones, and other distractions, nor did he commute to an ordinary job or dwell in a suburb with children and pets. He never took a university degree yet was fluent in six languages, a veritable polymath, his brain stuffed with colorful arcana, including reams of poetry and decades of song. Though he was not a wealthy man, he lived a relatively unfettered life on his own terms—a rarity among people I have known. He was a walker, a swimmer, a bon vivant, and though he could be ...

  • From New Life
    • Abstract: Two actors play all the roles here: ideally an actor around 40 to play Dan most of the time, and an actor almost 60 to mostly play Paul. The younger of these two actors has the first line of the play, and with each new character-heading the actors alternate. In the right-hand column of the script are suggestions of photographs, maps, moving images, etc., to be projected somewhere prominent onstage; as well as suggestions for sound. The play is set in Vancouver, Santa Monica, Syria, Hollywood, during the annus horribilis of 2016, with an epilogue ... Read More

  • Old Girls, or, The Ordinary Adventure
    • Abstract: Babcia called them the old girls, a nickname she debuted when Viv and Tess were in elementary school. Neither of them had fathers; who needed fathers' Tess's mother, a nurse, often worked evening shifts in the ER, leaving Tess with Babcia, who'd retired from her desk job at the post office and had cared for Viv since her mother passed. Viv and Tess would ride the bus along Bloomfield Avenue with Babcia for her weekly errands. Babcia often found the old girls perched on the red metal bench outside ShopRite, sharing peppermint patties with residents from the local senior-citizen complex. At night, Babcia would pull back the woolly throw obscuring the entrance to their blanket fort, where the old girls lay on their ... Read More

  • Four Poems
    • Abstract: Arguably "next in line" after the Russian "Big Four" A (Mandelstam, Tsvetaeva, Pasternak, and Akhmatova), the poet and critic Vladislav Khodasevich (1886–1939) has been, by comparison, neglected. The recent Selected Poems, translated by Peter Daniels, while receiving attention in The Guardian, has garnered not a single mention in the American press. As is often the case, I found the strength of these translations, by a British poet, to be their formal elegance, if at times, I think, too regular for the American ear.My purpose, then, is to remedy some imprecision in the translations available of his "prosy sections." I believe that the Russian originals of these blank-verse poems constitute the strongest possible ... Read More

  • An Atlas of the Difficult World
    • Abstract: Richard Holmes stands out among the literary biographers James Atlas summons in his compulsively readable book, The Shadow in the Garden: A Biographer's Tale. He values Holmes both for his biography of Shelley and his subsequent Footsteps: Adventures of a Romantic Biographer. In a decade-long pursuit of the poet, Holmes traveled everywhere Shelley had gone, retracing the very paths he once trod.This "tracking a physical trail through the past" represents part of what it means to be a biographer, Atlas comments. "You had, in essence, to live your subjects' life." Except, as Holmes concluded, "you would never quite catch them" as they faded into fleeting figures, or—in Saul Bellow's terminology—shadows in the garden. ... Read More

  • "Inside the Gates of Eden": Bob Dylan and The Nobel Prize
    • Abstract: When asked if he thought of himself as a poet, Bob Dylan once said with a smirk, "I consider myself more of a song and dance man." Nevertheless, when I was little kid, I used to open up books and sing out the words in a nasally Bob Dylan voice, like I was speak-singing a song, because that's what I thought Dylan did: He was the guy who sang books.Even when I was very young, I knew he was something special. His voice was wild and free, delightfully unconventional. "How did he get away with singing like that'" I wondered.I remember being seven or eight and driving in my dad's car while my older brother played Bringing It All Back Home on the tape deck and being transported by the words of "Gates of Eden":The ...

  • Apart from the Mainstream: James Castle
    • Abstract: What compels someone to make art' The question remains fascinating and perplexing. We can invoke the simplest—and possibly truest—explanation and say that it's a fundamental characteristic of what makes us human, citing Paleolithic cave art to prove the point, but in the 1950s, the French art historian and critic (and archaeologist, resistance fighter, politician, and novelist) André Malraux suggested a more precise answer. "What makes the artist," he maintained, "is that in his youth he was more deeply moved by his visual experience of works of art than by that of the things they represent—and perhaps of Nature as a whole." The notion seems plausible, perhaps because of its similarity to the notion of ... Read More

  • Watching the Great Gears Turn: Tall, Majumudar, Shewmaker, Bonner, Kennedy
    • Abstract: A posthumous collection presents the same sorts of problems that collections of elegies do: a reader must bring the critical faculties to bear on something presented as art, yet the reader, like the writer, is human. How can one read such human documents as these without seeming inhuman through a criticism of diction or gripes about tropes' I have been glad to avoid writing about such books—Donald Hall's Without, Mary Jo Bang's Elegy, Gjertrud Schnackenberg's Heavenly Questions—but I have before me Deborah Tall's last book, Afterings, and I find myself in the unfortunate position of writing about a posthumous collection: a book that—by its nature, humanly speaking—sounds like a series of elegies for the self.This ...

  • "Free Play" in Poetry
    • Abstract: A good poet once told me that when he sits down to write, he has nothing in mind (unless you count the knowledge that he's sitting down to write). If he's lucky, some words will emerge from this void. If he's doubly lucky, a subject will emerge from these words. If he's lucky cubed, he'll find the subject worth pursuing—at which point he'll have an incipient poem on, and in, his hands.If we're to take Robert Frost at his word (something one does at one's own risk), he too came to his writing desk—a lapboard, actually—with nothing in mind. A poem began as he said in a letter of 1916 to Louis Untermeyer, with only "a lump in the throat; a homesickness or a love sickness." In an achieved poem, "an emotion has found ... Read More

At that moment a daunting task of reconstruction began, and an equally daunting task of comprehension. Question followed on question. What had caused the war in the first place' How had a civilized Europe allowed it to happen' Mechanized combat, the experience of the trenches, the dogfights in the air—what were all of those really like' Could grievously wounded men, wounded physically and psychologically, ever be made whole again' How would 20th-century history and political geography be shaped by events that began simply and violently with an assassination in Sarajevo, then spread to Italy, Tsarist Russia ...

  • Heginbotham's Dreams
    • Abstract: "Pompeii. 79 AD. Hot and humid. Chance of showers." Maira Kalman, the witty and whimsical illustrator and children's book author, calmly recites this most inaccurate weather forecast, betraying no hint that the day's showers will fall as hot ash. She sits upstage on a bench beside an enormous cylinder of white twine, a stark white wall behind her, a stark white floor spreading out before her. Under Nicole Pearce's lighting, Kalman's stark stage world seems to spring from her own imagination. On the ground, some feet in front of her, lies a huge, gold-framed reproduction of Manet's Lady with a Fan. Downstage, to our right, a wooden cupboard's doors stand open, framing an unending video loop of an erupting volcano. ... Read More

  • Children Will Listen
    • Abstract: In recent Broadway forays, I have observed lobbies well-populated with excited children, mostly but not exclusively girls, typically dressed up a little, under the charge of parents and grandparents. It is interesting to consider the kind of show that draws this demographic.Let me distinguish what I'm not speaking of here. Somewhat older children, tourists in the world of more adult theater, may come in self-organized packs or be brought by teachers, and might worry about being thought immature if they came to the shows under consideration.Nor is this kind of show which goes under the label "children's theater," a repertoire filled with bowdlerized versions of adult shows, and/ or shows written or adapted for ...

  • This Old Man: All in Pieces by Roger Angell (review)
    • Abstract: To live a "long and happy life" is one of those stock phrases with interchangeable parts: one might wish for a "long and productive" life or a "long and healthy" life or even the Trekkie motto to "live long and prosper." But what does it mean to live a long life, well after most of one's friends, colleagues, and loved ones are gone, and why do we desire it so' Born in 1920, nonagenarian and longtime New Yorker editor Roger Angell confronts the beauty and pain of this "long life" in This Old Man: All in Pieces, which Angell refers to as "a portrait of my brain at 94: a different serving, with good days and bad days in there, some losses and recurring afterthoughts right next to a midnight haiku, a fugitive great ...

  • Florence in Ecstasy by Jessie Chaffee (review)
    • Abstract: Florence in Ecstasy, Jessie Chaffee's debut novel, is a classic expatriate novel that takes the genre in new directions. There's a reason that so many novels about Americans take place in Italy. For American writers, Italy is a country that's tailor-made for epiphanies, a place where antiquity and its remnants make it easy to glimpse the sublime. On the Spanish Steps, or in the halls of the Colosseum, Americans are likelier than not to feel a kind of historical vertigo perfect for characters synthesizing whatever has happened to them. A big chunk of John Cheever's work takes place in the Eternal City, and Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote of expat artists in his lengthy novel The Marble Faun. Regardless of the era or the ... Read More

  • Tough Enough by Deborah Nelson (review)
    • Abstract: Deborah Nelson's Tough Enough presents for study Diane Arbus, Hannah Arendt, Joan Didion, Mary McCarthy, Susan Sontag, and Simone Weil. She brings these women together on the basis of their similar styles of writing and thinking about suffering. At some point, each of them has been called "unsentimental" by a reviewer, a term that confers praise for resisting emotion; an unsentimental writer might also be called "clear-eyed," "refreshing," or "unflinching." (Full disclosure: It was in Nelson's course on 20th-century literature and culture at the University of Chicago that I first encountered most of these women.) Their attributes call to mind a whole list of women working around the same time, including Elizabeth ... Read More
