Letters To Yesenin book. Jim is at the beginning of his writing career, doing a lot of poetry writing himself, is a new father, and toys with the idea of suicide while writing a suicide. Well, at least he's on topic. This might get morbid ipso fasto, but Harrison keeps it light with his constant self-deprecating (and often dark) humor.

Jim Harrison's gorgeous, desperate, and harrowing "correspondence" with Sergei Yesenin-a Russian poet who committed suicide after writing his final poem in his own blood-is considered an American masterwork. In the early 1970s, Harrison was living in poverty on a hardscrabble farm, suffering from depression and suicidal tendencies. In response he began to write daily prose-poem letters to Yesenin

23. I want to bother you with some recent nonsense; a classmate dropped dead, his heart was attacked at thirty-three. At the crematory they lowered his body by fire-resistant titanium cables reminding one of the steak on a neglected barbecue grill, only more so. We’re not supposed to believe that the vase of ashes is the real him. Want to read the rest?

I bought and read the paperback version because I knew before hand it would be a keeper in my bookcase. I was not wrong. The author's ability to write letters to a dead Russian poet is one thing, but to write those letters in "narrative poetic form" is nothing less than awesome. The letters are filled with life, emotion, struggles, and hope. The narrative poems are some of the best I've seen in many years. I felt like I was sitting at the feet of a Master while reading this thin book.

Probably one of the best books of poetry I have read in a while. It was so heart breaking and accessible. These poems are letters to the Russian poet Yesenin who committed suicide after composing his final poem in blood. You see the phantom of suicide throughout these letters as he tries to deal with drug addiction and depression. Brilliant read! I am becoming more of a fan of his work each time.

I learned about the book while searching 'YESENIN' in .... I was shocked when I started to read. How the american understands and loves the Russian genius! One has to be a great poet, as great as Yesenin's wife Isadora. Yes, after the iron curtian fall, Yesenin is going to take place he belongs to - next to Cervantes. Thank you Mr. Jim Harrison for your kind beautiful letters. I love you.
