At times personal, at times political, the poems remain anchored in a formal complexity that delivers clarity and nuance to the ideas set forth within them.Whether writing about the sinking of the Lusitania, the death of Chekhov, his fathers passing, or the death of the Russian poet Joseph Brodsky, Filkins reminds us that, no matter the loss, poetry will survive, helped by the studied meditation he brings to it.Meanwhile, at the beginning and end of the book, lyric renditions of brief passages of the Iliad underscore Homers notion that there is nothing sadder than man is as true today as it was for the Greeks.
