9780810150935: Eulogy for a Private Man

In poems both intimate and public, meditative and musical, Dings seeks to enrich the present by evoking both the future and the past. Urgent and carefully formed, these poems seek an awareness and expression that are responsible -- intellectually and emotionally -- to the most private and most communal moments of human experience. In its exploration of the emotional and spiritual dichotomy struggling within us all, Eulogy for a Private Man is essentially and profoundly human in theme.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Theres a certain uniformity of expression that borders on monotony in this second volume by the Wichita State University professora collection that explores silence and solitude in language that is somber and without much rhythm. Dingss austere and attenuated metaphysics, with its relentless abstraction, allows for few things, or people, or places, but his poems are nevertheless accessible and proceed often by contraries: presence vs. absence, perception vs. reality, memory vs. forgetting. In these colorless lyrics, Dings searches among the ruins of the past for rare moments of kindness or a moment / fully lived, and in his fine poem The Rehearsal, he nicely restates the oft-held wish that this life were a warm-up for another chance. Dingss serious verse seems prayer-like: He finds joy in church music; he regrets all those things left undone in The Unlived, and he warns against those sublime impediments of the flesh in the puritanical Bodily Beautiful. In numerous pieces, including the title homage to another man of silence and intimate alienation, Dings seeks a common gravity that the family in The Family Gatherings discovers in their shared past and the prospect of death. Even his lighter poemsset off with the title Scherzopursue the same themes, especially when he humorously identifies himself with Prufrock. Eventually, Dingss tendency to animate abstract ideas weighs down the volume (the weeds of misanthropy, the wings of despair, the body of the ordinary, the skin of your perception). The final poem, which reconsiders Hart Cranes suicide as an immersion (not a failure), allows Dingss own morbidity to triumph in an otherwise decent volume. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Not every poem here is as fluid as one might wish, but Dings achieves a great deal in terms of defining the human condition. -- The New York Times Book Review, Melanie Rehak
