Gregory Orr "The Making of Poems" "Before I was powerless and passive in the face of my confusion, but now I am active: the powerful shaper of my experience."
Gathering the Poems Together: A Conversation with Gregory Orr
A series of tragedies during his youth left Gregory Orr confused and disillusioned. Now, the University of Virginia professor believes poetry – and the making of poems – has helped him live and heal.
The Making of Poems
Over four decades, Gregory Orr has established his reputation as a master of the lyric poem. Throughout his career, which also includes books of essays and criticism and an award-winning memoir, Orr has primarily written short free-verse poems, but in the past decade he has turned to writing long sequences comprising of short poems in...

“It was the Age of Poetry precisely because it was still the age of form, when form, even when abandoned, was there to be abandoned.” Cynthia Ozick reflects on W. H. Auden’s readings at the 92nd Street Y Poetry Center.

When I was fourteen, I might have enjoyed Charles Bukowski’s Women, much as I had enjoyed Henry Miller’s Tropic of Capricorn and Tropic of Cancer. The books, though they are written over 40 years apart, amount to about the same thing: a narrative about a working class guy who go rich writing about all the women he fucked. When you are fourteen and have never had sex, reading words like ‘cunt’ and ‘pussy’ is exciting because they are forbidden, but when you read them as an adult in such a context, they amount to some guy trying to boast about his conquests and pass it off as literature, which it isn’t. Bukowski is self-deprecating enough to make him far less annoying than Miller. Miller revels is recounting what is essentially rape as he details his experience with women looking for work during the depression and forcing them to have sex in exchange for the promise of a job he has no intention of giving them. Bukowski likewise recounts how he ejaculates inside of a woman against her wishes, and sodomizes another woman without her consent. Towards the end of the autobiography ‘novel’ he concedes that he is a selfish asshole (though not in so many words), but if he truly believed that, he wouldn't have further exploited the women in the narrative by publishing the story of their humiliation and changing their names so that he could refer to it as ‘fiction’.

Gertrude Stein sitting on a sofa in her Paris studio, with a portrait of her by Pablo Picasso, and other modern art paintings hanging on the wall behind her. - By reworking Gertrude Stein’s portrait in a primitive style, Picasso claimed for himself the power to represent the woman as she really is, not merely as a likeness of her physical appearance. Stein’s response to the image supports this point of view. In her book on Picasso, she wrote: I was and I still am satisfied with my portrait, for me, it is I, and it is the only reproduction of me which is always I, for me.
