The Living Fire

Edward Hirsch

A rich and significant collection of more than one hundred poems, drawn from a lifetime of wild gratitude in poetry.

In poems chronicling insomnia (the blue-rimmed edge / of outer dark, those crossroads / where we meet the dead), art and culture (poems on Edward Hopper and Paul Celan, love poems in the voices of Baudelaire and Gertrude Stein, a meditation on two suitcases of childrens drawings that came out of the Terezin concentration camp), and his own experience, including the powerful, frank self-examinations in his more recent work, Edward Hirsch displays stunning range and quality. Repeatedly confronting the darkness, his own sense of godlessness (Forgive me, faith, for never having any), he also struggles with the unlikely presence of the divine, the power of art to redeem human transience, and the complexity of relationships. Throughout the collection, his own life trajectory enriches the poems

O for that flame of living fire, Which shone so bright in saints of old! Which bade their souls to Heav'n aspire, Calm in distress, in danger bold.
