Before this book, I only knew Carver as a writer of short stories, some of my favorites, and after it I feel like I have met the man.

It is somewhat daunting, a huge book of poetry, spanning more than a decade, but I was mostly sucked in from the start, and it didn’t let go. He was not a perfect man, probably not even a very good one, but who is?

And who is brave enough to put the rawness of their struggles and failings on the page, for everyone to see and judge? Carver did, and they are stunning – as raw and powerful as his prose.

I found this book exactly when I needed it, and as I worked through it, I appreciated what it had to say about life, love, loss, and being an imperfect person in an imperfect world.

And sometimes - being reborn.

This book collects all of Carver's poetry in one place. He won his fame through his short stories, but his poetry is often wonderful -- the language is carefully chosen and clear, and the poems explore so many aspects of life. Nature, relationships, and mortality are frequent themes. If you love his stories, check out the poems. They are worth the read.

When I read "Your Dog Dies", I wowed. Then smiled at "Bankruptcy." When I finished reading "For Semra, with Martial Vigor", I was convinced that this is the best book I have read for years. I am only on page 14. I am eager to continue. But I also want to go back and re-read everything over again. Every poem is like a short movie. It flashes through the eyes, reaches the heart and leaves something there. It is that good.

Although he will always be remembered for his unsurpassed short stories, Raymond Carver is an equally great poet. Many themes appear and reappear in the course of his autobiographic poetry: fishing, his wife and his love for everything in the world, his conquering of his aloholism. Carver's poetry is easy to understand, as in his srories Carver has the knack of chosing the most precise words and of creating totally full characters in just a few words.Carver's main power as a poet is to make even the simplest things in life into epic journeys of a soul who has made his peace with the world. Just like the poetry, the introduction by Tess Harper broght tears to my eyes. If there is a heaven, I am sure Raymond Carver is there, fishing. He is the most human and for me one of the most remarkable of modern writers. Thanks for enriching my life!

I purchased this book after reading his collection of short stories This is What We Talk About When We Talk About Love and a few of his poems that I could find online. His poems, I think, function much like his short stories do: they are snippets of life, a moment or two captured in a few words. It makes for beautiful poetry most of the time, but some of the time it leads to a poem at the end of which you ask, so what? Which is why, hesitantly, rated this amazing collection 4 stars instead of 5.

Raymond Carver is one of the finest American writers of short stories and, during his short liftime, (he died at age 50) was acclaimed for this talent. Critics seemed to create the term "minimalist" and label Carver with it---which I believe caused him a disservice. What are readers who do not know his body of work to make of this word: "minimalism?" Labels, in any field, never quite take the measure of the man. What, indeed, is a "compassionate conservative?" Does this label mean that an old-fashioned conservative automatically has no compassion? Does it mean that a "liberal" is automatically compassionate? And where do these labels take and leave us? For readers unfamiliar with Carver's work, does "minimalist" mean that he stints on imagery? on emotion? on plot? If you have never read Carver, you owe it to yourself to find out what all the shouting was/is about. In his stories and here, in this book of collected poems (some of which are published for the first time), he takes everyday life and makes it resonate with great feeling and extraordinary beauty---be the subject married love, nature, fatherhood, fishing or his quickly approaching death by cancer. I find one of the the final, very short poems in this book, "Late Fragment" almost unbearably moving. In it he tells us what he wanted in life: "To call myself beloved, to feel myself beloved on the earth." Very Highly Recommended.

Those who have stated that Carver was a minimalist seem to feel minimalism is a negative. Minimalism is a form of expression, but it reflects merely the form, not the content. These are not minimal poems. The impact comes from straight language in simple grammatical structure. It is amazing how Carver is able to convey intense emotions with such a few number of words. He is a master. After I read FEAR, I was astounded (and somewhat disturbed) at how accurately he tells the depth of fear in such mundane events and short descriptions.
I am one of those who likes Carver's short stories as well as his poetry. He definitely has a masculine voice in all his work, but there is universality in the feelings. What I find more interesting than the "masculine" aspect of his writing (Hemingway was masculine too!) is his ability to write about city life and then go back to his roots in Oregon. Most writers have one of those locations in their souls. He has both and seems at home in both.
Well, I like Raymond Carver. Could you tell? This is writing that never sought out a thesaurus and still gives more shades of interpretation than Roget ever considered.
