Item description for As When, In Season by Jim Schley...

I like these poems immensely. What Schley has done is to reinvent the ode, especially in the nine poems for the muses. Prosodically hes discovered an odic tone, grave but graceful, imaginatively objective. Its extremely effective, and it tokens a very large degree of literary depth and experience."

Reviews - What do customers think about As When, In Season?

A true reflection  Aug 27, 2008
I've known the author since we were boys, and I've been familiar with Jim's poetry since we took a class together from Richard Eberhardt at Dartmouth in the ever-more-distant 1970s. This book is a tiny iceberg-tip...Jim is a truly remarkable guy, a fabulous, deeply gifted teacher, and he has poured himself into the life and culture of poetry with dedication and love for decades now. What you'll get inklings of in this book--twinklings, I'd rather say--is a guy with a very deep and utterly sincere heart, altruistic to the core, authentic, and wise, and long in love with words.

Between us, I've always been the guy who liked stories and he the poet, but the stories I love tend to shade toward the poetic and, although I think Jim would say that poetry is "language condensed," he's always been more than a bit of a storyteller, too. These poems are dense in language, rich, but there are rivers of narrative in them too.

Jim's had a lot of professional and personal success. He writes poetry book reviews that function as superb mini-essays on the art, he's been featured in NEWSWEEK's "My Turn" feature, and he's had his poems read by Garrison Keillor on his radio show (and included in Keillor's book "Good Poems" which I'm sure you can still find on this site). He's given up wider fame to commit to living on a co-op "off the grid" on the back side of a remote ridge in Vermont, and he's had to fit writing into small chinks in a very active community, work, and family life. Still and all, I think this book is a genuine success. It's rich, yes, requiring an active reader, but it's relaxed, too, with a fine pace and varied moods. I'm prejudiced, for sure, but I very much enjoyed the read, and I recommend the book warmly, especially, but not exclusively, to those who read and love poetry. Of course, I would recommend any true reflection of my friend to anyone; but then, you can take that into account.
