Gods Silence

Franz Wright

In this luminous new collection of poems, Franz Wright expands on the spiritual joy he found in his Pulitzer Prize-winning Walking to Marthas Vineyard. Wright, whom we know as a poet of exquisite miniatures, opens Gods Silence with East Boston, 1996,” a powerful long poem that looks back at the darker moments in the formation of his sensibility. He shares his private rules for bus riding (No eye contact: the eyes of the terrified / terrify”), and recalls, among other experiences, his first encounter with a shotgun, as an eight-year-old boy (In a clearing in the cornstalks . . . it was suggested / that I fire / on that muttering family of crows”). Throughout this volume, Wright continues his penetrating study of his own and our collective soul. He reaches a new level of acceptance as he intones the paradox I have heard Gods silence like the sun,” and marvels at our presumptions:We speak of Heaven who have not yet accomplishedeven this, the holiness of things precisely as they are, and never will!Though Wright often seeks forgiveness in these poems, his black wit and self-deprecation are reliably present, and he delights in reminding us that literature will lose, sunlight will win, dont worry.”But in this book, literature wins as well. Gods Silence is a deeply felt celebration of what poetry (and its silences) can do for us.

God’s silence is often difficult to understand. It reminds me of a long drive I once took. I just needed to get away. The stress of ministry life, family life, and just life seemed to be overwhelming to me.I described my life as a stereo turned up all the way and the volume control was broken off.

"God's Silence, Devil's Temptation" ist noch zu unausgegoren, das Album enthält viele Lückenfüller. Einzig und allen die Songs "For Such A Long Time, "Where You Belong" "Engel der Nacht", "God's Silence" und "Come To Me" wissen zu überzeugen, auch wenn es sich dabei nicht um Überflieger-Songs handelt.
