Sample text

Not that this poetry is naive, ignorant of or blind to the human havoc of our day. On the contrary, Schubert worked constantly within that havoc. His earlier poems are chiefly objective—that is, objects, the properties of his arduous landscape, almost completely contain his purposes. But even our desperation be­ comes a somber gaiety, the more-than-melancholy amusement a Charlie Chaplin embodies. His later poems remark the widening abyss. What is astonishing is this poetry's outspoken fearlessness before his grief and his unswerving fidelity to hi» predica­ ment.

The departing soldier is as he is, Yet in that form will not return. But does He find another? The giant of sense remains A giant without a body. If, as giant, He shares a gigantic life, it is because The gigantic has a reality of its own. V On a few words of what is real in the world I nourish myself. I defend myself against Whatever remains. Of what is real I say, Is it the old, the roseate parent or The bride come jingling, kissed and cupped, or else The spirit and all ensigns of the self? A few words, a memorandum voluble Of the giant sense, the enormous harnesses And writhing wheels of this world's business, The drivers in the wind-blows cracking whips, The pulling into the sky and the setting there Of the expanses that are mountainous rock and sea; And beyond the days, beyond the slow-foot litters Of the nights, the actual, universal strength, Without a word of rhetoric-there it is.

Acorns lie over the earth, no less neglected Than our unrecognisable regret: And here we stand as senseless as the oaks, As dumb as elms. And though we seem as grave as jailers, yet we did not come to wonder Who picked the locks of the past days, and stole our summer. ) We are indifferent to seasons, And stand like hills, deaf. And never hear the last of the escaping year Go ducking through the bended branches like a leaf. WALLACE STEVENS Repetitions of a Young Captain I A tempest cracked on the theatre.
