Reviews - What do customers think about Robert Lax?

The final poems  Sep 2, 2005
A pricey but handsome volume from Verlag of Robert Lax's final notebooks before his leaving Patmos for the last time before his death in September of 2000. This is a beautiful book--nice, heavy, slick pages, wonderful photographs, and the poems are laid out in a way that invites the eye to linger. Lax's poems are stil spare, and these are interesting in that they are long exercises in peeling apart the poet's own life and consciousness. They're more like his "21 pages" and journal entries than the short "Fables" or even the long, abstract island poems--yet still retain his trademark short broken syllable style. And for this reason, they're very involving. You feel closer to the center of Lax's world than ever before, as if you're invading his private world, sitting in his bedroom late at night watching as he whittles away at himself with words. Also included are several essays, one detailing Lax's final trip home, an interview (as I recall), and some other miscellaneous essays. Whether you love the poetry or loved the man himself, or both, this is necessary reading.
