    I agree, Robert! I do recommend that you click through on the "Autumn Journal" link (first usage in the text) for Katy Evans-Bush's long essay on the whole poem. It's quite good….

    I love Autumn Journal — and it is like reading Pope. That kind of long, discursive, meditative poem isn&#39;t enough in evidence lately.<br /><br />Bob

    It&#39;s that cadence that made me order a copy of his translation of Aeschylus&#39; <i>Agamemnon</i>. Can&#39;t wait to savor that one!

    Perfectly cadenced lines. It&#39;s like reading Pope.<br /><br />Give us more poets with a classicists&#39; heart.<br /><br />Happy New Year, Joseph!
