Alongside Wallace Stevens, James Merrill, and different pillars of twentieth-century poetry, Anthony Hecht joins the Borzoi Poetry series.
Hecht, whose writing earrings with the cadences of the King James Bible, and who, as an infantryman on the finish of worldwide battle II, participated within the liberation of the focus camps, lived and skilled the easiest and worst of the 20 th century. Readers of this volume--the first chosen poems to be made of Hecht's seven person volumes--will be captivated via Hecht's darkish tune and allusions to the literature of the prior. As J. D. McClatchy explains in his creation, Hecht used to be a poet for whom formal attractiveness used to be inextricably sure up with the dramatic strength, thematic ambition, and robust feelings in every one poem. the foundations of his paintings, which he either venerated and reworked, are "moral ideas intended eventually to bare the constitution of human dilemmas and sympathies.

Adam and Eve knew such perfection once,
God's finger within the cloud, and at the ground
Nothing yet springtime, not anything else at all.
But in our fallen kingdom the place the blood hunts
For blood, and rises on the searching sound,
What can we comprehend of lasting because the fall?
Who has now not, within the oil and warmth of youth,
Thought of the flourishing of the almond tree,
The grasshopper, and the failing of desire,
And notion his tongue may well pierce the secrecy
Of the six-pointed starlight, and may choir
A secret-voweled, unutterable truth?

1912 Май *** All stayed the same just as it was, Here it is futile to be dreaming, This road’s impassable, I close My shutters early in the evening.
Tell me, beauty, tell me, outlaw - you, Don’t you like the songs I’ve chosen? White cloth curtains block the light of day, Twilight streams inside in blue… Are we comforted by news from far away? Why is it I’m so at ease with you? 1912 *** Ты знаешь, я томлюсь в неволе, О смерти господа моля, Но все мне памятна до боли Тверская скудная земля. Журавль у ветхого колодца, Над ним, как кипень, облака, В полях скрипучие воротца, И запах хлеба, и тоска. И те неяркие просторы, Где даже голос ветра слаб, И осуждающие взоры Спокойных загорелых баб.
November 14, 1913 II Сердце бьётся ровно, мерно. Что мне долгие года! Ведь под аркой на Галерной Наши тени навсегда. Сквозь опущенные веки Вижу, вижу, ты со мной, И в руке твоей навеки Нераскрытый веер мой. Оттого, что стали рядом Мы в блаженный миг чудес, В миг, когда над Летним садом Месяц розовый воскрес, — Мне не надо ожиданий У постылого окна И томительных свиданий. Вся любовь утолена. Ты свободен, я свободна, Завтра лучше, чем вчера, — Над Невою темноводной, Под улыбкою холодной Императора Петра.
