I am just now reading David Ferry's new book--we have a great poet among us is all I can say. His poems are contemplative subtly intricate and moving. He seems to get better and better. His translations (I admire all of his translations from the Latin Poets but he has a wonderful one from Rilke) at once provide access to the original but are also testimony to his own creativity. "Read Slowly!" as one of his recent poems suggests--the rewards are never ending.

I was already familiar with the book. The copy I received was not as advertised. It was filled with marginal scribblings, underlinings & penciled emendations of the text.I will avoid that bookseller in the future.

David Ferry is a remarkable poet. Like Anne Carson he finds inspiration in ancient texts and through the processes of translation develops a poetic form that is nuanced, allusive, attentive to life and liveliness but not in the least 'heavy', 'irrelevant' or 'too poetic' (all complaints I've heard from high school students when teaching poetry). he's simply brilliant.
