Shaving [Ebook] ➩ Shaving Author Stephen Berg – Centrumpowypadkowe.co.uk This isn't a book to read aloud in polite company But what a refreshment that is given the overpowering strain of gentility and restraint in American poetry Useful as decorum may be as a poetic virtue This isn't a book to read aloud in polite company But what a refreshment that is given the overpowering strain of gentility and restraint in American poetry Useful as decorum may be as a poetic virtue in Moore and Bishop interesting as some poems are by Frost and Stevens that conceal rather than reveal such tendencies have become moribund in lesser writers There has been a justly strong reaction against the confessional suicidal poetry of the Sixties But Berg's work while deeply autobiographical is not confessional It is meditative metaphysical it presents profound psychic knots and tries to untie them or at least show us their shape There is an amazing variety in this work of tone of movement of narrative of anecdote of subject Shaving is presentational and objective a la Chekhov than anything by Lowell Plath or Sexton The self is certainly a similar amphitheater for Berg but it isn't inexorably at center stage; its sympathies and boundaries are wider And it is this expansiveness precisely what is lacking in confessional poetry that is so exhilarating Something absolutely new is being done in this book.
