    I m going to try and not be flippant In order to save you time and money, I will condense Donall Revell s book,The Art of Attention A Poet s Eye , to one sentence.Pay attention.For those of you who have time for than two words, I ll expand to three sentences.1 Pay attention.2 Fall in love with the world.3 Write.That aside, Revell does spend considerable time on select poems Those instances are worth reading, but can become tiresome as the same points are reiterated.

    Donald Revell starts out by saying that duration shapes a poem That as you observe and reveal what you see the poem grows Sounds simple He uses examples from Denise Levertov, and Charles Olson.He says, I have a real dislike for the term writer s block, a term that seems to imply an altogether fictional urgency Nobody ever needs to write a poem, and how in the world can an absence prove a present impediment I do not use the term writer s block so resonated with this assertion, but I do feel the n [...]

    THE ART OF ATTENTION A Poet s Eye by Donald RevellI will not pretend to be an expert on poetry I saw this series of short books on writing published by the always excellent Graywolf Press, and this was the only one at the library The title intrigued me and I wanted to know how a poet looks at the world I liked the parts of this book better than the whole The individual sentences better than the larger point Revell was trying to make, which, to my mind, frequently lost its way.Revell s argument f [...]

    In the poetry of attention we therefore find a pious materialism Sad and strange that these two notions piety and materialism should be so generally proposed and opposed as antitheses Their separation banishes the eye to a wilderness of mirrors It banishes poetry to a metaphysical preschool It compels aggression, setting sanctity loose upon unimproved matters of fact, constructing God knows how many golf courses, both real and metaphorical, as it goes I fly each week of the academic year from my [...]

    About looking Light, negative, positive space, shapes, possibilities Would be friends with Annie Dillard s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek and John Berger sWays of Seeing I really liked the first two sections on looking, and on translation The translation essays reminded me and I needed to be reminded of a translation phase I went through that was really helpful in dealing with, well, for lack of a better term, writer s block though I share his resistance to that term The bulk of this book is good quick [...]

    Every writer should read this entire series of writing books by Graywolf Press This one was particularly instructive because it helped attune me to the different ways a writer needs to pay attention which is important for someone like me, who is increasingly distracted and scattered.

    Milton Brasher-Cunningham
    One of the interesting things about The Art Of series from Graywolf Press is that there is not a consistent tone from book to book, neither is there a set format Each one has the author s fingerprints all over it Revel s tone might be best described as devotional, even confessional His description of what it means to pay attention, and how that translates into poetry has a deeply spiritual component about it, though not one that prescribes to a particular theology beyond attentiveness In the la [...]

    Leanna
    I m working my way through the poetry books in this series over my winter break This book is divided into three parts In Part I, Revell argues for careful attention to the things of the world in poetry This creates, he argues, a kind of peace having a careless, spontaneous, and mostly nonrepresentational aesthetic leads to some kind of better poetry, and, he almost suggests, sacred, as there is very much something spiritual as well as qualitative in his argument the best poetry tells the world [...]

    The author informs us that this entire little book is nothing but a gloss on the line Christ pupil of the eye I don t believe in Christ s divinity, or in God, but I still enjoyed this mystical consideration of the essence of Poetry, an approach which focuses on the poet s Eye and I Looking askance at the habits of many contemporary poets babbling workshop mumbo jumbo, revising and crafting to excess, fussing over metaphors, laboring over line breaks, exalting the imagination over observation, et [...]

    I do not know Donald Revell s poetry I picked up a couple books in this series and began reading this one before Birkerts on time and the memoir Revell casts off formalism and effort to advocate for his poetry of attention, an eye to on the outside world and on a mystical reception of the poem by the poet I might argue with such a conclusion stated so absolutely but his prose is wondrous and elusive enough to not offend and what stakes do I really have in poetry debates anyway The first section [...]

    Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore
    Energetic prose on inspiration by Apollinaire s translator and poet some people are born for certain things, like Kirk Douglas playing Van Gogh in that corny Hollywood version and will I always associate Gaugin with Anthony Quinn , but he LOOKS like him and has that sharp edged edginess we associate with Vincent , so Revell has brought Guillaume to us in freshly steaming portions This book treads that difficult terrain of aesthetics and spirituality, and has a slice of what Ginsberg called a boa [...]

    Ann Michael
    Alas, this book by Revell is not as sterling as I might have wished anyway, it didn t inspire me or cause me to think in new ways about poetry or creative acts I m not sure if it is his prose style which sounds as though it might be better delivered orally, in a talk or the repetitiveness of some of his catch phrases, or the possibility that I have simply read far too many books on poetry, poetics, creative writing, etc.I agree with his premises whole heartedly, but found little new in this slim [...]

    Derek Reinhard
    Some very compelling essays thoughts I find reading Revell like eating wasabi, you have to just let it happen to you, otherwise it is a painful, undesirable experience And I think that is how Revell wants us to look at poetry writing it doesn t require craft I suppose he d say poetry abhors craft reading or writing poetry, there is to be trust and seeking to simply see at the most elemental level of the eye and of the mind.

    Jane
    The poems that Revell sited, and many of his insights about poetry are amazing They challenge what I think about my favorite poems, and also helped me to think newly about poems I would, in the past, have dismissed as unsurprising I am utterly grateful for that On the other hand, the book often felt overly analytic to me, like I was reading a text for a college course I think this book is best read in small doses.

    Diane
    Book from a parallel universe As the words entered my brain they evaporated What did he say again Left unfinished.

    Amari
    very good indeed better than i expected after the fiasco of charles baxter s volume, given that baxter is editor of the seriesme dubious moments, but at times rather perfect, in fact.
