Description

Long-lined and steadily laugh-aloud funny, Kirby’s poems are ample steamer trunks into which the poet seems so as to put absolutely anything-the heated restlessness of youth, the mixed blessings of self-imposed exile, the settled pleasures of home. As the poet Philip Levine says, “the world that Kirby takes into his imagination and the one who arises from it merge to turn out to be a creation like no other, something like the world we inhabit but funnier and more full of wonder and terror. He has evolved a poetic vision that seems in a position to include anything, and when he lets it sweep him around the face of Europe and The usa, the results are astonishing.” The poems in The House on Boulevard St. were written within earshot of David Kirby’s Old World masters, Shakespeare and Dante. From the former, Kirby takes the compositional method of organizing not only the entire book but also every separate section as a dream; from the latter, a three-part scheme that gives the book rough symmetry.
