Allen Grossman's poetry is tethered to an antiquity that he both honors and subverts. His pastoral poems, for instance, fly in the face of the form's historic purpose first set out by Theocritus in Idylls and followed by Virgil in Ecologues. For them, pastoral portraits of rustic shepherd life celebrated a lost and golden age. Grossman's vision is darker: "At that time the sheep called to him/ From their wormy bellies, as they/ Lay bloating in the field. He was/ A pastoralist.

The Ether Dome is his seventh book of poems. Grossman’s poems are always peeling back more and more layers of appearance to disclose deeper or more distant realities. Some of those realities are so distant and so deep they no longer include the human.

Grossman's poems are rife with ancient brutality and human endurance. There is a mythology at work beneath the raw and violent surface of these humane poems. Grossman indulges and relishes in the ability of the battered spirit to prevail by way of that ancient precept long forgotten by the water-downed souls of the modern world: primal courage. Grossman has pulled back the Ulyssean bow and let loose the avenging arrow upon the lackluster suitors of the modern world. Grossman's poems possess the same quiet rage and humble disguise as Ulysses' return to Ithaca as a beggar. There is a Quixotic spirit here, but the hard blows of life are evident, and these hardships, these pains, form the hard-willed inspiration of Grossman's language. The language coupled with Grossman's inability to surrender to the forces of life produces the genius of Grossman's poetry. As a former student of his at Hopkins, I can only say that he is as great a teacher as he is a poet. Although any student of his must beware of those Achillean ash spears that he hurls when he gets fired up during lectures.

Grossman has often been called a poet's poet, and one of the things that means is that he's very hard to read, very hard to get into, basically difficult. But get over the hurdle, and this is one of the most profound and illuminating books you'll ever read. A ten is an insult. This book deserves a 20, and easily. I read this book in jaw dropped awe.
But if you're not up for it, you might as well go for some Charles Simic. :-)

"The Piano Player Explains Himself" and "The Work" are from The Ether Dome. I had never heard of Grossman, but am a scattered reader of poetry. "The Work" woke me up this Sunday morning. A great awakening--written in 1991 (or earlier), urgently fitting today.

Mr. Grossman possesses a wide intellect and a deep feeling center. To boot, the man can write most contemporary poets under the table.

He has gathered many awards and prizes for excellent reasons.

It is perceivable that Mr. Grossman has been influenced (mainly in his rhetoric) by Wallace Stevens. His eloquence is unique in that it is wrought of bronze, iron and gold.

This is a poet who shall be read when our descendants will not recognize the names of ninety-nine percent of the cadre of poets in the twentieth century.

Wonderful collection by a brilliant poet. "The Runner" has always been my favorite of his poems. If you're familiar with any of his poems that mention his mother, Beatrice, you'll appreciate this one.
