    One thought on “Lessness”

    1. The poetry here is of a more post-modern cerebral variety, not so much providing emotional oomph, but rather more of an intellectually isn't that neat. Absence, what is unsaid, blankness, erasure, as the title implies is as important as the visible words on the page. Many of Henry's poems drift across the page in jagged lines, leaving visual white space abounds, while many other poems have words and phrases blacked out, omitted, and still others feature lines crossed out by still visible. What i [...]

    2. The poems in this book are divided into four sections. I didn't care for the first two. There were lots of redactions, odd enjambments and other devices that, for the most part, didn't meaningfully enhance the poems. If anything, they seemed to have been added just to make the poems seem edgier. The third section was a home run.

    3. Poetry books lead to almost impressionistic reviews. This book deals with the concept of things decaying, disappearing, loss. The pages are filled with space, words are crossed or blotted out.
