From An Explanation of America : LAIR Robert Pinsky ?. .Pinsky, citing Horace, revives a vision of human freedom that I can no longer identify as belonging particularly to America-any more than I might have considered it as Roman.

From An Explanation of America : LAIR Robert Pinsky ? Inexhaustible. When a man stoops to pluck at the coin some boys of Rome have soldered to the street, I think that just then he is no more free than any prisoner, or slave; it seems that someone who wants too much to get things is also someone who fears, and living in that fear cannot be free.

From An Explanation of America:LAIR Robert Pinsky ? Inexhaustible, delicate, as ifWithout source or medium, daylightUndoes the mind; the infinite, Empty actual is too bright,Scattering to where the roadWhispers, through a mile of woods. His book of criticism, The Situation of Poetry: Contemporary Poetry and Its Traditions (1976), is referred to often. He has argued for, and written, a poetry of discursiveness, one that can treat abstract thought and social reality as well as subjectivity and deep emotion.

Robert Pinsky is one of America’s foremost poet-critics. Pinsky’s second volume was the book-length poem, An Explanation of America. Like Robert Lowell, Pinsky attempted to understand American history through a comparison to ancient Rome. Pinsky’s interest in poetry that mixed contemporary speech with wide-ranging subject matter led him in 1994 to publish a new translation of Dante’s Inferno. He had been asked, with a group of nineteen other poets, to participate in a reading of the poem at the 92nd Street YMCA in New York City in May of 1993.

Robert Pinsky ?

Inexhaustible, delicate, as ifWithout source or medium, daylightUndoes the mind; the infinite,

Empty actual is too bright,Scattering to where the roadWhispers, through a mile of woods …

Later, how quiet the house is:Dusk-like and refined,The sweet Phoebe-note

Piercing from the trees;The calm globe of the morning,Things to read or to write

Ranged on a table; the brainA dark, stubborn current that breathesBlood, a deaf wadding,

The hands feeding it paperAnd sensations of wood or metalOn its own terms. Trying to read

I persist a while, finish the recognitionBy my breath of a dead giant's breath--Stayed by the space of a rhythm,

Witnessing the blue gulf of the air.
