There are many of Kinnell's trademark long poems, including the title poem, where phrases pile on top of one another to evoke a vivid world. But there are several short gems as well, including "Divinity," in which conciseness helps forge the very intensity of the poem. By turns humorous, erotic, and melancholy, Kinnell here explores many of the themes that have consumed him over his 40+ years of writing - but in a style that is less taut, less compressed.

Galway Kinnell has been an active poetic force for more than thirty years

Galway Kinnell has been an active poetic force for more than thirty years. His early collections stressed more rigid poetic forms, but through the years Kinnell has freed himself from the necessity of these forms at all costs and has let his subject matter dictate the form employed more directly. His latest collection, WHEN ONE HAS LIVED A LONG TIME ALONE, includes both structured and free-form verse, and the two cohabit nicely. Humor has not always been Kinnell’s strongest suit, but he has become very comfortable with its use. The poem Oatmeal can be said to employ a sense of the ridiculous and succeeds marvelously.

This is a brilliant work of art by Kinnell. He bares his soul and gifts us with such fierce imagery and hypnotic verses. The poems seem to live on in the bones. Can't shake them! It is now one of my favorite poetry books.

So sad that Galway Kinnell is no longer with us. I heard him read in the 1980s. It was amazing! If you're looking to buy a book of poetry, this one is among the best.

I bought this book for an Poetry class in college and while I like specific poems by Galway Kinnell (notably the poem entitled Oatmeal- which is in this book) I donated the book after the course was over. I can't imagine need the book on hand and I can just look up individual poems online if I want them.

In this, Kinnell's 10th book of poetry, one could either bemoan the book's unevenness or be dazzled by its range; I'd recommend the latter. By turns humorous, erotic, and melancholy, Kinnell here explores many of the themes that have consumed him over his 40+ years of writing -- but in a style that is less taut, less compressed. Long compared to Whitman for the rolling electricity of his language, Kinnell also shares many of his forefather's concerns: "How could anyone/willingly leave a world where they touch you/all over your body?" Kinnell writes, and he seems genuinely perplexed.
At times there's a prosier voice here than those familiar with his Selected Poems or his Book of Nightmares would expect; when in "The Cat" he surreally details the exploits of a feline saboteur ("when the cat is around something goes wrong"), for example, or, in "Oatmeal," muses on the benefits of eating porridge with imaginary partners, one is reminded of the narrative-propelled poems of Stephen Dobyns, the wry humor of Billy Collins....
But Kinnell's project has always been a bit more ambitious than those of the aforementioned, and there are poems in here that will simply stun you. The title poem itself is among Kinnell's best writing ever, and to read the 11-part poem aloud, and straight through, well it'll have your head ringing like a prayer bowl.

I stole this book from my local Chapters and when I got home was greatly disappointed. I took it upon myself to return it to the store, I just didn't want this piece of garbage cramping my style. Kinnell is up to his usual hijinks, talking about the ins and outs of Life and Love in our time, but this one lacks the charm of his earlier works. I haven't read his earlier works, by the way, but they can't be as bad as this.
