James Merrill â 6 DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD Ö PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB â James Merrill REVIEW The Changing Light at Sandover James Merrill’s audacious and dazzling epic poem The Changing Light at Sandover remains as startling today as when it first emerged in separate volumes over a period of several years Individual parts won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award and the entire poem when it was collected into one volume in 1982 won the National Book Critics Circle Award It is now an American classic here in a definitive new hardcover edition that includes Voices from Sandover Merrill’s recasting of the poem for the stage The book carries us to the scene of Merrill’s Ouija board sessions with his partner David J. What I liked about this incredible epic poem is not so much the premise James Merrill and his real life lover hovering over a milk glass tabletop using a Willoware teacup for a Ouji Board pointer as they commune with spirits in a shoebox of a parlor but the spectacular language and phrasing The most gorgeous words and phrases are imbedded into a piece that is basically domestic in natureFor instanceOh very well then Let us broach the matterOf the new wallpaper in StoningtonReaders in small towns will know the worldOf interest rippling out from such a topicKnow by their own case that small town isLargely a state of mind a mediumWherein suspended microscopic figments Boredom malice curiosity Catch a steadily revealing lightThis exhibits something of the paradox the poem is both epically large and household small which makes for a rich reading experience The moods and tones evoked are lovely It starts in the small hours An interlude Out of Rossini Strings in sullen mood Manage by veiled threats to recruit a low Pressure drum and lightning piccolo I didn t kill myself trying to understand every line but read this with lax pleasure soaking up the beauty of the writing The Test us to the scene of Merrill’s Ouija board sessions with his partner David J.
