W. S. Merwin

    Even in the 77 poems of the first collection of Dream Songs the essential attributes of their idiom were fully formed. The originality of their language is flaunted, saved from affection by the sheer authority and authenticity of the voice it embodies. The verse proceeds with an oddity skating on the edge of comprehensibility and frequently slipping well beyond it.
