Triptych begins with 3 quasi-Biblical dramatic poems, all dark, all convincing, an atavistic testimony to the harshness of an ancient Creator who exacts horror from his children, an unsettling tribute few will recognize from their childhood instruction, if any, in the ways of the elder Testament. The Daughter of Jephthah is the 1st, a fleshing out of the story of a man who trades, unwittingly, victory in a great battle for his daughter, killed by his own hand. Judith is the 2nd, the beheading of Holofernes, a fairly literal paraphrase. Susanna is the 3rd, the bloody perdition of 2 elders, a fanciful adaptation. Millennia later, The Mask on Brahman captures Justin Price and his attempt to relive the late Sixties within the context of 1976 and a journey west to Wisconsin. This prose-poem ends with Justin’s satori--or suicide? The reader must decide. Beyond the Human Predicament is a series of poetic aphorisms and the underpinning of all the author’s work. Slow Lane Cantos is a concluding episode of sorts, culled from the poet’s own biography, 24 cantos, each of 9 tercets. Intensity is sacrificed to a levity and irony which ease one out of a fiercely emotional book. 3

  • Rothko

    'Rothko,' the title long-poem of this slim volume, is an attempt to crystallize 20 texts on a very elusive major 'abstract expressionist' (a designation of which the artist himself derived scant satisfaction) into a dramatic monologue in a wholly new verse form, 33 sections of 6 couplets of nearly identical length lines, each section preceded by a brief haiku-like quotation fro...

  • Pieta`
    david swartz
    Pieta`: Song of the Blessed Virgin is the culminating volume of a master poet, who has charted his own truth and passage through the thicket of lesser work, of a host of contemporaries with limited pith and vision, venal ambition, a dogged tendency to measure themselves against peers and seldom the truly great. Witness here some sample rejections: 'Your work has great power an...

  • DREAMSONGS and other songs
    david swartz
    'Dreamsongs' borrows no more from J. Berryman than an excellent title, for the gist of the introductory poems is likely (luckily) indeterminate, alternating in fierce dialectic between (and among) the wildest scatology and the most sensitive and lyrical paean to human nostalgia and regret.The poet in this first section flexes imagination in service of the widest range of public...
