Three Poems

Ery Young in New York captures a great American city in all its alluring detail It is a wry and tender study of romantic possibility disappointment and the obduracy of innocence Repeat until Time begins with a move to California and unfolds into an essay on repetition and returning home at once personal and philo. In the second of these three poems Repeat Until Time Sullivan describes Shelley as Another dubious rhyming poet she rails against his misogyny saying Both of his marriages had failed He was about to die He was cruel In the following section she uotes two of his famous lines True love differs from gold and clay That to divide is not to take away What crap E M Forster hadn t even come outWhen he used it as an epigraph fine poetry Says his lame hero grandly brooding on sex In this poetry essay she first gives the examples of Shelley Rilke and Forster s hero as being misogynistic because they believe they can love than one woman at a time and then goes on to the particularity of the narrator s own life in which she sees her once lover with someone else On a personal level I don t agree with Sullivan s statements yes Shelley Rilke and Forster were all misogynistic in their own way but not because they loved than one woman Forster never came out except to close friends because he was born in 1879 and it wasn t safe to do so Why is she criticizing him for this This is one small extract from a dense carefully constructed book It s one example of something that rubbed me up the wrong way and it s not fair to dwell on it too much But it demonstrates why Three Poems didn t work for me Sullivan is an accomplished poet excellent at using rhyme and rhythm to structure and further her ideas She s witty and her poems are dense and full of references both to modern life and the poetic tradition Her writing gives the reader a lot to talk and think about But for me it all rang hollow The way all three poems look at life feels shallow as though the poet is only ever picking at the surface of things And that may be the point this is a book about surface about the ways we present ourselves But it s not a detailed look at that It s the experience of one attractive white woman and the ways in which she navigates her upper middle class life and Sullivan doesn t give this context she never makes us feel like this is one way to exist in the midst of a myriad of other ways Poetry can be self absorbed without giving the reader that feeling that it s erasing all the other lives around it But Sullivan is consistently superficial and never gives me the feeling I long for from poetry a sense of the universal Perhaps that s why the section I uoted above rubs me up the wrong way Sullivan seems criticises the writers she talks about for not having empathy for the people around them for seeing their own existence as the only way to be while she writes a whole book doing exactly this The Lost Revolution tender study of romantic possibility disappointment and Marion Mahony Reconsidered the obduracy of innocence Repeat until Time begins with a move The Girl in the Glass Tower to California and unfolds into an essay on repetition and returning home at once personal and philo.
