Description:
from Mount Fuji A draughtsman s draughtsman, Hokusai at 70 thought he d begun to grasp the structures of birds and beasts, insects and fish, of the way plants grow, hoped that by 90 he d have penetrated to their essential nature. And more, by 100, I will have reached the stage where every dot, every mark I make will be alive. You always loved that resolve, you d repeat joyfully Hokusai s utterance of faith in work s possibilities, its reward, that, at 130, he d perhaps have learned to draw. Gail Mazur s poems in Forbidden City build an engaging meditative structure upon the elements of mortality and art, eloquently contemplating the relationship of art and life and the dynamic possibilities of each in combination. At the collection s heart is the poet s long marriage to the artist Michael Mazur (1935 2009). A fascinating range of tone infuses the book grieving, but clear-eyed rather than lugubrious, sometimes whimsical, even comical, and often exuberant. The note of pleasure, as in an old tradition enriched by transience, runs through the work, even in the final poem, Grief, where our ravenous hold on the world is a powerful central element.'
