    RescueThose few who ride off in search of the truth And are lucky enough to come across it After years of wandering Are likely to settle down on the spot And bask in its steady brightness For them to trudge back to the dark for us, Some motive other than love of the truth Must also be working, One they may not be able to name, One they may try to resist Even at the moment they reach the ridge Overlooking the cluster of tattered tents That make up our camp in the wilderness How tempting for them [...]

    I like when collections of poetry come together in some interesting way In Callings, Carl Dennis, the author of Pulitzer Prize Winning Practical Gods, writes poems about callings in all the senses of that word Sometimes it relates to career choices, other times, to a reticent and reluctant prophet To be honest, the first ten or so poems in this collection didn t wow me I greatly enjoyed Practical Gods, so I am familiar with Dennis s aesthetic those initial poems just lack the surprising word cho [...]

    These poems lack the punch of those in Practical Gods, but the voice is the same, and there persists the focus on the daily goings on in Buffalo, NY The appeal is the wisdom with which Dennis analyzes the human errors and longings beneath the surface of mundane occurrences, and the celestial significance he bestows upon them Carl Dennis is one of my favorite poets.

    A wonderful collection of longish poems that take ordinary events and trace them either forward or backward with great leaps of imagination I especially liked one about imaging how your parents met, called Drugstore.

    Nobody, so far as I know, calls Carl Dennis a great innovator, and I would not trust anybody who did Insofar as he has distinctive gifts and he certainly does they are gifts firmly opposed to great innovation, to major endeavors of any sort It is in the minor efforts, the daily or weekly rewards and tasks that make up most of any life, that Dennis finds his m tier He was, and remains at the age of seventy one, a poet of what we are pleased to call Middle America, of a circumscribed middle class [...]
