Reviews about The Poems Of Charles Reznikoff: 1918-1975 (A Black Sparrow Book) (3):
Grillador
This is a must buy for anyone interested in 20th Century American poetry. You have zero excuses for not making yourself acquainted with Reznikoff, and this book is marvelous. Among his many accomplishments, Reznikoff is the author of what I consider to be one of the greatest poems ever written in English. It's from a sequence called 'Heart and Clock'. It has been anthologized. It is brevity and subtle power in five lines:

I will write songs against you,
enemies of my people; I will pelt you
with the winged seeds of the dandelion;
I will marshall against you
the fireflies of the dusk.
Sorryyy
Charles Reznikoff is a poet who, expanding on the imagists Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams, helped shaped the idea for the Objectivists poets. Reading his poetry is quite enjoyable because, while his poetry is fairly simple in form and subject matter, he provides clever, witty haiku-like poems through the process of observation. He observes things and writes about them in his poetry and it becomes rather humorous because the reader thinks to themselves, "I never thought of it like that before." For example, in one of his poems entilted "Epitaph," he writes,
"Not the five feet of water to your chin
but the inch above the tip of your nose."
The Jewish history sections of his poetry are much more serious and lengthy. In the sections, King David and Israel, Reznikoff narrates Biblical-based events. In other of his sections, such as the Fourth and Fifth groups of verse, he deals with the gloomy effects of poverty and alienation. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in poetry that uses concise imagery and language.
Malanim
Charles Reznikoff's poetry almost always come as a welcome revelation to those who have never read him. Here is a poet who takes us deep into the material and spiritual essence of the 20th-century urban environment, and well beyond that--into the recesses of Jewish history and culture and a great variety of other topics as well. His great themes are adaptiveness, tenacity, resilience and the surprising nature of human beings under duress. These are poems that astonish and delight, again and again.
