9780252066924: The Rooster Mask: POEMS (Illinois Poetry)
From Kirkus Reviews:

This second volume by the William and Mary English professor incorporates some of the strengths of those poets hes written about in academic monographs, especially Robert Lowell, whose tragic sense of history is much like Harts (The Ghost Ship) own: incidents and figures from the past remembered from a somewhat altered perspectivethrough old dioramas found in a barn, the Lincoln Memorial covered in pigeons, or the reenactments of Williamsburg. The sad tales of Americas natives particularly haunt him, from Pocahontas to a drugstore Indian or a collection of Indian-Head Nickels. A sequence of stolid verses depicts the poets grandfather doing manly things at his Maine cabin (fishing, hunting), and then descending into the scattered memories of Alzheimers. Harts rough monosyllables often describe his boyish reveries in naturesapping trees, picking applesbut his puerile innocence is interrupted by scenes of cold historical consciousness: A school play (in the title poem) recalls Kennedys Cold War; a game of warrior braves is undercut by Vietnams atrocities glimpsed on the TV; and building a tree-house ladder with his father ends with an argument about the war. Hart also channels real and mythic voices from the past: Admiral Byrd in Antarctica, Sylvia Plath skiing, Icarus in descent. Altogether, Harts Puritan plainness and his love of simple things and chilly landscapes make for much welcome clarity. -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
