characters A Wedding in Hell ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Simic puts chirping birds sex and happiness into a world of broken windows shiveri. Charles Simic now writes in English and lives in New Hampshire but he was born in Belgrade three years before the United States entered the Second World War He has said that being one of the millions of displaced persons made an impression on me and that I m still amazed by all the vileness and stupidity I witnessed Whatever he witnessed the emotional uality of his poems are never far from the shattering of windows a single man running and boots thudding menacingly against the cobblestonesI love Charles Simic but I believe this is only the second book of poetry I have read by him The first was Dismantling the Silence 1971 the second is this collection published almost twenty years later four years after he received the Pulitzer Prize The funny thing is though that I do not see any signs of development The poems here are very much like the poems from twenty years beforeI don t offer this as a criticism The old poetry was spare minimalist haunting The recent poetry is the same way Even now the windows break the man runs the big boots thud on the cobblestonesHere are two of the poems from this volume just to give you a sample There are many poems here which are not about cities but somehow the ones about cities are the ones I remember DREAM AVENUEMonumental millennial decrepitudeAs tragedy reuires A broadAvenue with trash unsweptA few solitary speck sized figuresGoing about their businessmanIn a world already smudged by a schoolboy s eraserYou ve no idea what city this isWhat country It could be a dreamBut is it yours You re nothingBut a vague sense of lossA piercing heart wrenching dreadfulOn an avenue with no nameWith a few figures conveniently smallAnd blurred who in any caseHave their backs to youAs they look elsewhere beyondThe long row of gray buildings and their many windowsSome of which appear brokenIN STRANGE CITIESThe way a curving streetReveals with each stepA novel sightPerhaps a high windowShuttered againstThe late afternoon sunWith someone rising froma bed of illicit loveTo throw it openJust as you pass byGreen shutters clatteringBehind your backThe sunlight ahead of youGolden like a lionEscaped from the zooAnd now rearing upIn all his terrorAnd royal splendor

characters A Wedding in Hell ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Mind “Provocativea tantalizing beautiful fusion of visions” Bloomsbury Review. A Wedding In Hell by Charles SimicPublished by Harcourt Brace Company Orlando Florida 1994 Kelsey Williams If I had to describe A Wedding In Hell by Charles Simic in one word the word would be simplistic He writes the most brilliant poems with incredibly powerful messages in a very simplistic way Simic s style is one that I would love to try and copy in my opinion poetry is best when it is clear and understandable I always hate when I have to read a poem five times before I can get anything out of it I would have to say that A Wedding In Hell is one of the most relatable collects of poems I have ever read I find myself reading his poems over again not because I am confused but because I enjoyed reading them so much With its cloudless sky Of late summer And its trees shivering In the first cool breeze On days when we put all Our trust into the world Only to be deceived The World Simic chooses very deep specific topics he is incredible at really focusing a poem on something small whether it be an event or an object and then he condenses his poem into so few words that each word has a powerful punch and the poem collectively has a strong meaning Charles Simic has an elegance to his writing Heavy mirror carried Across the street I bow to you And to everything that appears in you Momentarily And never again the same way Miracle Glass Co Never before have I ever thought to myself wow that was a beautiful sentence but after reading the collection I am blow away by the beautiful words and meanings of his poems Simic has a very consistent style thorough his collection When reading his poems I can feel how much time has gone into the crafting to get the poems message to be just right All of Simic s poems have relatively short lines and with the exception of a few each poem is split up into multiple stanzas which to me also adds to the simplistic feel of the collection Before we even get to read the words our eyes see the page and already have an opinion of what we are going to read When my eyes see a slender column of text I know I am going to be forced down the page uickly and the poem is probably full of action and when I see a huge block of long lined text I know I am going to read at a slow pace and the story will be sad or depressing But even at first glance Simic s poems put the reader at easeAlmost every line in the collection is an end stopped line this also helps add to the readability and simplisticness of the poems The end stopped lines are what really give the poems their pace Simic finishes his thoughts allowing the reader to slow down and really appreciate the poem
