Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Rexroth's earliest poetry was pure expressionism. He later moved into a "cubist" phase, combining disparate elements, aiming at an organic whole. Poems from this phase seem almost "stream of consiousness". With "Flower Wreath Hill: Later Poems", Rexroth returns to his roots. However, although the form is almost narrative in clarity, the imagery is often mystical and hallucinogenic. In essence, the cubist diction is abandoned; in it's place there is a juxtaposition of imagery which is striking, powerful and very accessible. This work also contains a number of translations. While Rexroth was an apt linguistic scholar, his translations draw their strength from his understanding of context and idiom rather than his ability as a wordsmith. All in all, the work is beautiful and moving. It will remain on your bookshelf and eventually announce it's age with it's worn binding rather than with it's coat of dust
