    1 thought on “Hardheaded Weather: New and Selected Poems

    1. Some poems and sections of this new and selected knocked me out. Others, not so much. I love Eady's tenderness and his witness. He takes time with his work, and makes it easy for the reader to slow down and hear him. The pieces in here that I love, I dearly love. I will return to them indefinitely.

    2. I feel like I know this poet, or that I should. His writing is so familiar and easy to me, as is his face on the jacket cover. His depth of compassion is strong, whether he's writing about his transition from urban renter to nonplussed rural homeowner, the sad facts of war, or his process of entering midlife. Funny, but I discovered that Marsha is a friend of his on Facebook. Perhaps she can introduce us--at our houses upstate, of course! "Migration" and "Recycling" speak to that bit of luck we [...]

    3. Love the accessibility of C. Eady's work, though the new work may come across as too accessible & simple for some I will admit to having enjoyed the poems culled from his several poetry collections more than the new ones. Really loved the painfully honest poems about family, particularly the/his father. My dad knows nothing about poetry- and I think he might appreciate this stuff. Great buy.

    4. "And summerHas gauzed the air,"writes one of my top three favorite poets in a new poem in a collection of all his hard-hitting books. His lines are clarity. I would recommend an earlier book instead of a collection of selections, which I tend to dislike in practice, but any and all of his other books are all great places to start, every time.

    5. Easy prosey reads - jazz and beats influence. Earlier poems tend to be more interesting. Themes: Racism, family, music.
