    1 thought on “The Afterlife of Objects”

    1. I bought this book when it first came out in 2002 and read it cover to cover. I remember being blown away by the poems and have held onto it for that reason. I have recently returned to my practice of reading at least one poem daily and so I picked this one back up, but I didn't have nearly the same response. Maybe my taste in poetry has evolved, but maybe, and I think this a more likely scenario, it's more about where I am in my life right now. I believe that poetry speaks so strongly to feelin [...]

    2. I've reread many of the poems in this collection, to a growing sense of frustration. It's as if each of the poems glistens with the promise of an object viewed from far off, but upon closer inspection of the poems it becomes clear that most of the interest Chiasson generates is through a highly polished display of language. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing; it's just that one first senses a promise in the book's early poems that diminishes over time when the artifice of the language wear [...]

    3. First book of poems I've read in a while to which my primary response was envy. Chiasson's world is populated with more things than people, but everything is colorful and alive -- and subject to all the despair that the former entail. He has a firm but delicate hand with his language. I suppose it does sometimes come up to the edge of being too polished, but for me the compression and precision almost always paid off.

    4. 2.5, I guess. This is Chiasson’s debut collection and I haven’t read much of his poetry, though have read some of his critical essays. It’s hard for me to evaluate — just not the kind of poetry I enjoy reading. I most enjoyed the shorter pieces in this collection. Many phrases and images I found arresting, but overall didn't enjoy it as much as I'd hoped. I especially liked "My Ravine," "Ward," and "The Kitsch of Death," "What is awareness / here, so ate, so close to night?" - from "Ward [...]

    5. Dan Chiasson is a talented poet. But some of the poems in this first collection feel too clever and, with the overload of references to say Horace, pretentious. Though the poems are well written, at times, I wasn't compelled to read on.

    6. I enjoyed the way Chaisson makes observation of the world or others a method of discovering more about the speaker.

    7. "There's just no winning in this life, is there?" - Brandon Lee Deleon as I contemplated what I would write in this review textbox.
