    2. That Gluck voice. Keep trying to understand why it has such a vulnerable authority, like someone wielding a dagger then using it to offer you a piece of fruit. A voice poised between challenge and cowering, distance and closeness, indifference and intimacy. In “Prism,” it’s the daughters “assignment” to fall in love; an improper “vaccination” leads to passion, desire and the search for love; the lover is “the stranger” in the shock of “the first dawn.” There’s a lot of at [...]

    3. Averno is as bracing and clean and as perfect as the stark scherzos of winter evoked by Louise Glück. The poet explores, with moments of splintering incision, the myths of Persephone, the difficulty of reconciling the dying body to an earth that itself seems at once death-bound (headed for winter) yet renewable (headed for summer), and the strange regions that the soul fitfully inhabits in a world devoid of comfort or faith ("weren't we necessary to the earth"?)This redoubtable collection gives [...]

    4. Let me begin. Let me say that I do not know poetry. I cannot separate the good from the bad with any real authority. What I do like and do admire is based entirely on impression and appreciation, surprise. I like poetry though. And it comes to be as something I feel I must read, it comes in waves of desire and ignorance. So when I talk about this collection of poetry I cannot pretend that I have much to say which is deserving of your attention.Louise Gluck is one of those names in American poetr [...]

    5. Louise Gluck, Averno Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2006)I've never been entirely sure what to think of the work of Louise Gluck; Averno, however, has certainly tipped the balance into the “dislike” bucket. When she is good, she is very, very good; when she is bad, however, you get stuff like this:“'You girls,' my mother said, 'should marrysomeone like your father.'That was one remark. Another was,'There is no one like your father.'”(“Prism”)As pithy as the wisdom may be, the poetry is [...]

    6. I preface this by saying I am a huge fan of Louise Gluck's poetry - she'd have to fall a long way for me to not consider her breathtaking, amazing, articulately intense - a creative flame. Averno is no exception to her previous work I have read.Averno; again, elegant, emotive writing that frequently looks sparse upon the page and yet is dense with meaning, possibility, passion!I was taken by her Persephone poems, in particular, A Myth of Devotion [p 58]He (Hades) wants to say, I love you, nothin [...]

    7. I'm writing my senior thesis on this book. Yes, I like it a lot. (read 25+ times )done with my thesis- so this book is going far away for awhile.

    8. I couldn't say it better than this. From The NYTBR: "Far from the dull outposts where American poets have become willfully obscure or adopted antique models to assemble poems of scant content, poets like Glück are tapping the wellsprings of myth, collective and personal, to fuel their imaginations and, with hard-earned clarity and subtle music, to struggle with some of our oldest, most intractable fears — isolation and oblivion, the dissolution of love, the failure of memory, the breakdown of [...]

    9. This was my first brush w/ Louise Glück's poetry, and it was really great. The topic of the abduction of Persephone has already been fodder for so many poems and other writings — enough that it can tend to be trite — yet, Glück managed to bring it back to life in a truly fresh and multidimensional way. The way she universalizes the various messages taken from the original myth and corresponds them to her own life or the lives of others is really emotional and heartbreaking. And her style [...]

    10. Hade svårt att inte jämföra den här med vår svenska moderna uttolkare av Persefone-myten, Lotta Olsson (Anderberg). Men där Olsson fokuserar på kärleken mellan mor och dotter så fokuserar Glück på konflikten dem emellan: "she has been a prisoner since she has been a daughter" - i detta är hon också mer progressiv än Olsson.En annan svensk poet jag, egentligen ännu mer, påmindes om är Tomas Tranströmer. Främst genom att även Glück låter dikterna bäras av "genomlysta bilder" [...]

    11. A night in summer. Sounds of a summer storm.The great plates invisibly shifting and changing—And in the dark room, the lovers sleeping in each other’s arms.We are, each of us, the one who wakens first,who stirs first and sees, there in the first dawn,the stranger.

    12. This is what I hate about poetry.Ha! Well, I’m done!No, really, *Averno* started with significant promise – using an established mythos to analogize human growth and the confrontation with death in an evolved secular society. She does well with the “Persephone” poems [reminds me of a poem by Wendy Barker] in that her poetry tells a somewhat coherent story that transports the reader to the place and allows the reader to become emotionally invested. Lines like “It is snowing on Earth; th [...]

    13. From Maureen McLane's Washington Post review 7/2/06:Reading [Louise Gluck:] is excruciating -- and this is a compliment. A poet of taut intensities, she walks a high-wire between the oracular and everyday, the absolute and the ephemeral, the monumental and the delicate. In her latest book, Gluck ushers us into the realm of the dead: Averno is the lake west of Naples that, according to the Romans, was the entrance to the Underworld. Taking up the myth of Persephone -- the at story of Demeter's da [...]

    14. This was a really irritating collection of poems. Some are tolerable -- e.g. "Persephone the Wanderer." Others, like "Archaic Fragment," made me wonder if it's wrong to desire to punch a book. Most were just wastes of space: pages full of three-word lines in two-line paragraphs in multi-section poems, each poem just over a page, so that a total of some hundred words might take five or six pages. This would be ok if there were a haiku-like density in the expressive language thus presented. Instea [...]

    15. In 2007, Gluck published this brilliant retelling of the Persephone myth, and had a new book of essays from the University of Michigan devoted to her work appear, with contributions by Frank Bidart, Stephen Burt, Bonnie Costello, and Wayne Koestenbaum, It's still on my "to-read" shelf, but if ON READING LOUISE GLUCK approaches the heights of PROOFS AND THEORIES, it will be a definite "keeper."

    16. I'm so glad I read this. Many of these poems are inspired by the myth of Hades and Persephone and the consequences that resulted from that. Glück has some sharp, killer lines in here. I'm not used to reviewing poetry, but I think if reading a line makes you stop and think about it for a while, then the writer did what they wanted you to.

    17. Based on the Myth of Persephone the poems keep reminding us of what death and winter do to us to make us yearn for spring and life. We shouldn't be afraid of death as the soul has married itself to the body instead of to death.

    18. Aching emotions and nature. Simple language, myth, and history. Will need to find more Gluck. Going for Meadowlands next.

    19. inspired to buy more poetry and deeply in love with louise gluck. reminded of this love by seeing her read a couple times in the past three months.

    20. Louise Glück's poems are life changing: a beautiful, mournful meditation on life as a cycle of lost innocence leading to death.

    21. Averno consists of seventeen poems in two parts, seven pieces in the first part and ten in the second. The book takes its name from a volcanic crater lake in Naples. In Greco-Roman Myth, this is the entrance to Hades, the underworld. As such, most of the poems in this book are totally about or somewhat referring, to the mythology, especially circling around Persephone, the goddess Demeter, and the god Hades. The poem Persephone the Wanderer in the first part assumes and imagines what Persephone [...]

    22. Sublime meaningsrapturously penetrating through the abyss of the heartpiercing tenderly our senses with words molded out of pain, beauty and love.AVERNO (Avernus in Latin) is a volcanic crater lake, which is thought by the ancient Romans to ran deep to the underworld. October".I remember how the earth felt, red and dense,in stiff rows, weren’t the seeds planted,didn’t vines climb the south wallI can’t hear your voicefor the wind’s cries, whistling over the bare groundI no longer carewhat [...]

    23. Last month, I picked up Faithful and Virtuous Night by Louise Gluck and absolutely adored it. The narratively focused recurring motifs, the authoritative world-building which seems drown every other thought out and the softened melancholy drew me in, in spite of the fact that the frequently romanticized idea of "night" was being used here as a metaphor for an other-worldly deficit. Reading Averno was a similar experience, but even more unsettling, if that's possible. The story has a definitive v [...]
