Sample text

Frost swerves from failure once again. With the entrance of the buck, twoness reasserts itself, not as the end of correspondence but as its motor. While the poem does not explore the sexual difference between the couple, the emergence of the buck becomes a figure for it, which makes the crossing now a perpendicular one. ” But, as the narrator insists, this is not mere repetition (“not the same doe come back”). This time the comma has been removed. Is the exchange less hesitant? Difference allows the narrative of exchange to continue, and the confrontational male presence marks difference just as the female invites sympathy.

Against an ethos that stresses the value of deep roots and origins, she presents the virtues of rhizomatic connections, ad hoc maneuvers, and entrepreneurial actions. Her geographic restlessness becomes a model for the pulsive energy she finds in herself and nature.

Apostrophe is too ambitious; it aims “across the gulf of well nigh everything,” and inevitably reifies the gulf. ” If the gloveless hand cannot touch the moth and must relinquish its presence, the language hints at reciprocity even though the representation denies it. ” The poet may be empty-handed at the end, and resigned to the isolation of the lyric position, unable to locate kind-ness in the world; but the crossing in this line, even with the negatives, suggests a congruence which the poem does not pursue but which establishes completeness.
