Green is the Orator follows on Sarah Gridley’s brilliant first collection, Weather Eye Open

Green is the Orator follows on Sarah Gridley’s brilliant first collection, Weather Eye Open. Gridley has also written a lyrical book, whose unrhymed sonnets, fragments, and quasi-odes make good use of traditional tools-condensation, analogy, mystery: It was left to the ocean to matchstick the hull/ left to the darkroom to develop the trees.

Green is the Orator follows on Sarah Gridley’s brilliant first collection, Weather Eye Open, in addressing the challenge of representing nature through language. Gridley’s deftly original syntax arises from direct experience of the natural world and from encounters with other texts, including the Egyptian “Book of the Dead” and the writings of Charles Darwin, Peter Mark Roget, William Morris, William James, and Henri Bergson. Gridley’s own idiom is compressed, original, and full of unexpected pleasures.

This second book of Sarah Gridley's poetry is as profound and original as her first, Weather Eye Open. Her language almost defies description in its unique juxtaposition of metaphor. She writes of artists, life lived and slanted to encourage a luminous way of seeing. Her work reflects a spiritual sensibility without dogmatic religious references. I highly recommend both books to anyone interested in poetry that challenges, demands careful reading that rewards in its depth and richness of thought and emotion.

This collection of poems, probably considered "difficult" by the author, is mostly the gibberish that seems to be in vogue in academic poetry circles. In many of the poems there is a hint of lyrical accomplishment in early stanzas (?) which quickly descends into indecipherable language, e.g. strange subject-verb combinations, giant leaps in subject matter, little cohesion. I've read the book twice and some of the poems many times. The author's knowledge of biology and her poetic skill come through in some poems. For example, "Arethusia" skillfully describes this rare orchid's (and the Greek mythology nymph's)habitat to one's satisfaction, though it requires several careful readings to decipher it. So why not make a more easy and pleasurable read? I know my academic friends will say good poetry doesn't have to have clear, concise meaning or even beautiful language if it's "experimental". To this I reply "Emperor Ashbery and his acolytes have no clothes".
