Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Nancy J. Low, Wailan. Here he deftly adopts Ezra Pound's ''ideogrammic method,'' producing verse that is deceptively accessible but operates on many levels at the same time. The key is a directness of observation, which roots Rexroth's writing in the particularity of the physical world. Rexroth, after all, is primarily a contemplative poet, his subjects the immutability of the universe, the transcendence of nature and erotic love and the fleeting quality of life. It is the night before Good Friday, and as dawn breaks and his wife stirs, Rexroth catches a glimpse of reconciliation, in which past and future, love and redemption, somehow merge:.
That sense of time's ephemerality is one Rexroth shares with the Chinese poets he admired, and it becomes increasingly pronounced in his work. What makes him quintessentially American, however, is his engagement, the political and social outrage that emerges in his poems. This might seem contradictory, but the closer we look, the more we see that here, politics and contemplation are inextricably related. In the end, of course, such a statement carries its own authority, suggesting a contemplative vision that is philosophical and practical all at once.
Yes, Rexroth means to tell us, in choosing to live we assert our autonomy, but what's just as true is that living is the only choice we have. This conundrum, as Rexroth's poems vividly remind us, is both the blessing and the curse of humanity, to exist between free will and history.
