Read full description of the books:
For me, every book Graham wrote prior to this is preparing for these large poems. These days, they remind me especially of Ashbery, though I would also include the Bishop of North & South and Stevens. What this means is that she approaches the occasion for any individual poem knowing it will be impossible to just state explicitly what the poem is about. Good poems attempt difficult subjects, and difficult subjects continually fail to yield to some simple explanation. And so Graham's poem drives at explaining, even while she's aware it will not really be possible. I find her grasp of detail, and the potential any detail has to explain the overall scene, to be the driving force of many poems. And I'm continually fascinated by the execution.
