by Robert DuncanNostalgia is a very tricky subject, I think. Or maybe it's not so tricky as it is typical for a poet to rely on for its darker tones, and exceptional for a poet to form a tension from the darker tones running up against that feeling of novelty that also accompanies this perspective. And maybe, for Duncan, nothing could be solely dark. He is the dear, ecstatic poet of making. In this book, the poems are about growing old, a sentimental subject. And because it also involves living, Duncan makes it a wonder.
