    I was very much ambivalent about Certain Magical Acts There were moments that I really liked but also moments that I found to be utterly incomprehensible and not in the emotionally resonant way that I like in work like Brigit Pegeen Kelly's or Larry Levis's Some of Notley's poems were brilliant but much of the book I found difficu

    Contains my favourite poem I have heard read aloud this year by the poet 'Blinding the White Horse in Front of Me' By turns distressing apocalyptic vulnerable channelling moments of truth telling scattered with irreverence this book is a dazzling wrenching achievement that really wants poetry to be restored to

Certain Magical Acts

Ulties from the recent economic crisis and climate change to the sorrow of violence and the disappointment of democracy or any other political system  Notley channels these themes in a mix of several longer poems one is a kind of spy novella in which the author is discovered to be a secret agent of the dead another an extended message found in a man. I was very much ambivalent about Certain Magical Acts There were moments that I really liked but also moments that I found to be utterly incomprehensible and not in the emotionally resonant way that I like in work like Brigit Pegeen Kelly s or Larry Levis s Some of Notley s poems were brilliant but much of the book I found difficult without density and obliue without a sense of endpoint I like climbing steep walls in my verse but I like to have at least a few visible handholds and I didn t find many in most of this bookLyrically Notley s best pieces are fluid and interesting like in Blinding the White Horse in Front of Me which I liked well enough but didn t love and which begins Blinding the white horse in front of me If I ride on it Have you forgotten yourself enough to come with me Hurts so That s just loss This whole within This was one of the comprehensible poems although it was not perfectly so and many of the poems displayed the unusual diffculty of each sentence making good sense and seeming to follow from the previous one but I often had no idea what I had just read even in a literal what did the words say even if I only take them literally and don t really try to make comprehensive sense out of them sort of way The pieces I liked the least tended towards this strongly for me like this excerpt from Found Work lost lace a very long poem in the middle of the book With an ancient harmonica I got to be man wrong be man wrong The old man built a slump upon his backMy favorite poems were probably Two of Swords Nine and Ten both sorts of fantasias on tarot and probably the most comprehensible pieces in the book I Went Down There a sort of dream seuence of womanness and communication Maybe but resonant in ways most of the book was not for me and Private Life The Names another long poem and difficult to follow but it had some truly beautiful sections The rest were either fine like Blinding the White Horse in Front of Me or did nothing for me at all
