  1. My introduction to this collection came via a single poem, Thread, which was posted on the Academy of American Poets website poets viewmediap pr While I knew nothing of Chiasson, I was immediately certain that this was the work of a father, of someone who had spent a great deal of time reading to his children And for once, my aim was true.How different from the first Chiasson poem I remember reading and filed, in my haphazard way, randomly among the pages of one of my all time favorite novels, D [...]

  2. It took me several reads to understand what was going on in this book, which is a good reason to read it I liked the second half better than the first the title poem is pretty amazing, but the Swifts poems in the beginning I wanted to like the idea of them, but they remain fairly inaccessible to me I mean, I get what they re trying to do, they just don t make me feel anything Chiasson is apparently trying to reinvent his style with each of his books I don t know whether I should ascribe meaning [...]

  3. This book is split into a few smatterings of pithy poems and a titular section dealing in broad, allegorical strokes that seem in line with Chiasson s earlier work I found the latter bewitching, though the paternal tones of the piece seem directed at Dan s own relationship with his father, and not as a father not only a missed opportunity but a missed promise, being as the book is dedicated to his children The work still springs from a well read, irreverent mind, and Chiasson gets away with t [...]

  4. More sort of vaguely run of the mill contemporary modernist lite free verse from New Yorker scribe and Wellesley prof Chiasson I finished it about a week ago the physical book is in my apartment in New York, and I am sitting in Pennsylvania trying to remember a single distinguishing thing about it other than that he writes about masturbation a lot, and that Kay Ryan who, whatever else you say about her, writes poems that are instantly identifable blurbed it That pretty much says it all.

  5. Chiasson is a professor of English at Wellesley and poetry critic for The New Yorker This 2010 collection contains the reflection I am like a home movie from the 1960s, vividly alive but quiet, since the right technology hasn t been invented yet Where s The Moon, There s The Moon, 13.

  6. I really loved this collection, especially Here Follows an Account of the Nature of Birds, Satellites, Where s the Moon, There s the Moon, and the poems in Coda Hide and Seek.
