At last-a definitive selection of the elegant work by a poet at the forefront of American poetry for more than three decades. With his first several books, J. McClatchy established himself as a poet of urbanity, intellect and prismatic emotion, in the tradition of James Merrill, W. Auden, Elizabeth Bishop-one who balances an exploration of the underworld of desire with a mastery of poetic form, and whose artistry reveals the riches and ruins of our "plundered hearts.

I had not written many poems before, and have hardly written one since, but I sent in an application to the English department and found myself, one January afternoon, in J.

"Here, in a precedent-setting collection, are the master singers."—Carol Muske-DukesPoetry and music share countless virtues, affecting us in many of the same ways. We respond to their lyricism, move to their rhythms, and anticipate their refrains. In antiquity, the two forms were one and the same, performed together, not as prima donna and accompanist, but as inseparable aspects of a single piece.The Music Lover's Poetry Anthology celebrates this timeless connection with more than 150 extraordinary poems written with music as their muse. Through them, we experience the power of music to enthrall, evoke, and inspire, whether in opera houses, on road trips, or in the unexpected interior worlds to which music escorts us. The book's nine sections—Listening to Music; Songs and Singing; Performances; Composers; Opera; Jazz and Blues; The Piano and Piano Lessons; Horns, Woodwinds, and Strings; and Music in Nature—include an exceptional array of poets: the most eminent versifiers from today and centuries past, as well as an exciting selection of lesser-known discoveries and rediscoveries.While the poems in The Music Lover's Poetry Anthology are themselves musical, they are included because they are direct responses to music and the experiences entered into through it. Some are tributes to performers and composers—from Bach to Stravinsky to Coltrane to Callas—while others recreate the magic of live performance. Others still are exquisite renderings of the memorable, often intimate moments that music generates or leads us to relive—an audience of seals drawn in from the sea in Seamus Heaney's "The Singer's House," or a man making peace with his bourgeois roots via Cole Porter in Tony Hoagland's "You're the Top."Whatever element of music they address, the poems of The Music Lover's Poetry Anthology form a striking arrangement that is bound to resonate with lovers of poetry and music alike.Contributors to The Music Lover's Poetry Anthology include Fleur Adock, W.

This is a beautiful gift for the musician or the wordsman. It contains some of the most wonderful poetry about music and musicians ever written. This is the third copy I have bought. Recommended highly!
Gavinranadar
New twist on an old theme: music,composers and poetry. A good mix and a good read.

The book contains contemporary poems about music. I think I prefer poems with more depth than most of these. I thought that I might be able to use some of them in our Federated music club, but most of them are too obscure for that. That is, they require explication before reading which, in my case, is not helpful. There are so many good poems that express a love of music, or that make the poem musical, or that have music as the topic, but are not contemporary. One can go through many anthologies and find these isolated poems, but I had hoped that this volume would take the work out of it for me. No such luck.
