Good Book Collected Poems Who wants one too? "I wish my library had got a skull!(All libraries should have grave furniture-)Whose, whether that of poet, king or trullWould not affect its erudite allure,Like Latin in its logical bone-structure,And which time’s accidence cannot annul.”- From, A Skull.I think a decent library needs a strong sense of character. I have all sorts of random odds and ends around mine. I do refer to my book collection as a library now as I have around 1200+ books. It grows by the day. Seriously though, I have hoarding issues. When I’m forty, I’m not sure where I’m going to keep my (by then) thousands of books. Anyway, Hope Mirrlees is a drastically under read poet. This poem I quoted here is relatively simple in content. Her real masterpiece is a poem calledParis, which I would argue is just as experimental as James Joyce’sUlysses. It’s even often recognised by academics as a precursor to T.S Elliot’sThe Waste Land. So why such low ratings here on goodreads when compared to other works like this? I’m not sure. Outside the realms of university study, Mirrlees, like many others, seems to have slipped through the net.Parisis a poem about a city. But how do you capture an entire city in poetry? First you need to decide what defines a city. But how do you do that? One person’s version will be different to another; there can never be a fixed definition of such a place. Cities change and they mean different things to different people. So how do you get this into words? It’s rather simple really, capture and entire volley of voices. Have them fight against each other and create an obfuscating effect of randomness. A city is a place of noise; it is a place of hustle and bustle where there are countless people going about their business. Everybody has a story to tell, and everybody has a head full of ideas. Voices make up a city. And in this poem there are many. They all come together and blurt out whatever is happening. They speak with different levels of urgency and talk about different things; thus, an entire cultural overview of the city is captured. We hear about the food and the drink, we hear about the political events and art. But we also hear about what makes Paris great, her history and her triumphs. This poem is a celebration: it’s a love song to Paris.
