1 Robert Creeley Poet Details Once known primarily for his association with the group called the Black Mountain Poets, at the time of his death in 2005, Robert Creeley was widely recognized as one of the most important and influential American poets of the twentieth century. His poetry is noted for both its concision and emotional power. Albert Mobilio, writing in the Voice Literary Supplement, observed: Creeley has shaped his own audience. The much imitated, often diluted minimalism, the compression of emotion into verse in which scarcely a syllable is wasted, has decisively marked a generation of poets. Creeley was born in Arlington, Massachusetts in When his father died in 1930, he was raised by his mother and sister in Acton. An accident when he was four left him blind in one eye. He attended Holderness School in Plymouth, New Hampshire, on a scholarship, and his articles and stories appeared regularly in the school s literary magazine. Creeley was admitted to Harvard in 1943, but admitted later that he had felt discouraged by the sardonic stance of my elders. He left Harvard to serve in the American Field Service in 1944 and 1945, and drove an ambulance in India and South-East Asia. Creeley returned to Harvard after the war, though he never graduated. He later received an MA from the University of New Mexico. He began corresponding with William Carlos Williams, who seems to have put him in touch with Charles Olson, a poet who was to have a substantial influence on the direction of his future work. Excited especially by Olson s ideas about literature, Creeley began to develop a distinctive and unique poetic style. Throughout the 1950s, Creeley was associated with the Black Mountain Poets, a group of writers including Denise Levertov, Ed Dorn, Fielding Dawson, and others who had some
2 connection with Black Mountain College, an experimental, communal college in North Carolina that was a haven for many innovative writers and artists of the period. Creeley edited the Black Mountain Review and developed a close and lasting relationship with Olson, who was the rector of the college. The two engaged in a lengthy, intensive correspondence about literary matters that has been collected and published in ten volumes as Charles Olson and Robert Creeley: The Complete Correspondence (Volume 1, 1980). Olson and Creeley together developed the concept of projective verse, a kind of poetry that abandoned traditional forms in favor of a freely constructed verse that took shape as the process of composing it was underway. Olson called this process composition by field, and his famous essay on the subject, Projective Verse, was as important for the poets of the emerging generation as T. S. Eliot s Tradition and the Individual Talent was to the poets of the previous generation. Olson credited Creeley with formulating one of the basic principles of this new poetry: the idea that form is never more than an extension of content. Creeley was a leader in the generational shift that veered away from history and tradition as primary poetic sources and gave new prominence to the ongoing experiences of an individual s life. Because of this emphasis, the major events of his life loom large in his literary work. Creeley s marriage to Ann MacKinnon ended in divorce in The breakup of that relationship is chronicled in fictional form in his only novel, The Island (1963), which drew upon his experiences on the island of Mallorca, off the coast of Spain, where he lived with MacKinnon and their three children in 1953 and After the divorce Creeley returned to Black Mountain College for a brief time before moving west. He was in San Francisco during the flowering of the San Francisco Poetry Renaissance and became associated for a time with the writers of the Beat Generation: Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Michael McClure, and others. His work appeared in the influential anthology The New American Poetry: (1960), edited by Donald Allen. In 1956 Creeley accepted a teaching position at a boys school in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he met his second wife, Bobbie Louise Hall. Though Creeley published poetry and fiction throughout the 1950s and 1960s and had even established his own imprint, the Divers Press, in 1952, his work did not receive important national recognition until Scribner published his first major collection, For Love: Poems , in This book collected work that he had been issuing in small editions and magazines during the previous decade. When For Love debuted, Mobilio wrote, it was recognized at once as a pivotal contribution to the alternative poetics reshaping the American tradition.... The muted, delicately contrived lyrics... were personal and self-contained; while they drew their life from the everyday, their techniques of dislocation sprang from the mind s naturally stumbled syntax. The very first poem in For Love, Hart Crane, with its unorthodox, Williams-like line breaks, its nearly hidden internal rhymes, and its subtle assonance and sibilance, announces the Creeley style a style defined by an intense concentration on the sounds and rhythms of language as well as the placement of the words on the page. In a piece for the London Review of Books, Stephen Burt wrote that We recognise Creeley s poems first by what they leave out: he uses few long or rare words, no regular metres and almost no metaphors, and, noting how little that style changed, Creeley kept for five decades a way of writing whose markers include parsimonious diction, strong enjambment, two to four-line stanzas and occasional rhyme. What changed over
3 his career was not his language but the use he made of it, the attitudes and goals around which the small, clear crystals of his verse might form. Though For Love and Words (1967) both received critical acclaim, by the late 60s Creeley was already abandoning the spare style which had made him famous. In Pieces, A Day Book, Thirty Things, and Hello: A Journal, February 29-May 3, 1976, all published between 1968 and 1978, Creeley attempts to break down the concept of a single poem by offering his readers sequential, associated fragments of poems with indeterminate beginnings and endings. All of these works are energized by the same heightened attention to the present that characterizes Creeley s earlier work, and many of the poems in Hello (1976) refer to the last days of Creeley s relationship with his second wife, Bobbie. That marriage ended in divorce in 1976, the same year he met Penelope Highton, his third wife, while traveling in New Zealand. For all of Creeley s experimentation, he has always been in some ways an exceedingly domestic poet; his mother, children, wives, and close friends are the subjects of his best work. Because Creeley s second marriage lasted nearly twenty years, the sense of a major chunk of his life drifting away from him is very strong in Hello. Creeley here conveys the traumatic emotional state that almost always accompanies the breakup of long-term relationships. Creeley s next major collection, Later (1979), is characterized by a greater emphasis on memory, a new sense of life s discrete phases, and an intense preoccupation with aging. In Myself, the first poem in Later, he writes: I want, if older, / still to know / why, human, men / and women are / so torn, so lost / why hopes cannot / find a better world / than this. This futile but deeply human quest captures the spirit of Creeley s later work. It embodies a commonly shared realization: one becomes older but still knows very little about essential aspects of life, particularly the mysteries of human relationships. The ten-part title poem was written over a period of ten days in September of The poem begins by evoking lost youth youth, in later life, can only become a palpable part of the present through the power of memory and presents a kaleidoscopic view of Creeley s life, both past and present: a lost childhood dog and memories of his mother, friends and neighbors are all mapped onto the poetry he is composing in an attic room in Buffalo, September, The Collected Poems of Robert Creeley, was published in The poems Creeley wrote in the last decades of his life increasingly remember and reflect on memory and the past. As Stephen Burt described them: The later poems are more traditional than their predecessors, in their sounds and in their goals. They rhyme more often. They have recognisable closure. Few are so short as to pose conceptual puzzles about what a poem is. When they are bad they are prosy or repetitive, not insubstantial or nonsensical. They never sound like Olson (much less like Ginsberg), and at their best they recall Thomas Hardy: they are, in the end, mostly poems of old age. Life and Death (1998) examines the poet s increasing age and mortality. Reviewing the book, Forrest Gander acknowledged Creeley s lasting importance to American poetry: Robert Creeley has forged a signature style in American poetry, an idiosyncratic, highly elliptical, syntactical compression by which the character of his mind s concentrated and stumbling proposals might be expressed... Reading his poems, we experience the gnash of arriving through feeling at thought and word.
4 Creeley was a prolific poet, even late in life: the volumes after Life and Death came in regular succession, including Loops: Ten Poems (1995); Ligeia: A Libretto (1996); So There: Poems (1998); En Famille: A Poem by Robert Creeley (1999); Thinking(2000); Just In Time: Poems, (2001); and If I Were Writing This (2003). R. D. Pohl in the Buffalo News, praised If I Were Writing This, declaring that it contains some of the starkest and most memorable poems Creeley has written. Pohl and a Publishers Weekly reviewer both saw If I Were Writing This as a companion volume to Life and Death, each of them composed primarily of poems dedicated to family and friends (dead and living), collaborative verses, and such poems as For You in which intimacy of tone coincides with cryptic, lyrical abstraction. Pohl noted that If I Were Writing This is the first major volume to appear since Creeley joined the ranks of such poetic giants as Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, Wallace Stevens and John Ashbery by winning the prestigious Yale University Bollingen Prize in He continued: The fragility of our common experience in language and the world resonates through every line of Creeley s recent work. Creeley also wrote a considerable amount of prose and was editor of a number of volumes, including Best American Poetry Creeley s prose includes a novel, essays, and short stories, as well as a play, collected letters, and an autobiography, published in Creeley taught for over 30 years at the State University of New York-Buffalo, helping to turn its English and Poetics program into one of the most famous havens for avant-garde writing in the world. In 2003 he was appointed distinguished professor of English at Brown University. In an appreciation of Creeley written for the Poetry Project Newsletter, Peter Gizzi said, He was a devoted teacher, undeterred by the persistent critique of the role of poets in universities. Conversely, on the Black Mountain model, he was more interested in bending institutions to support poetry. That was one of his labors. Also noted for his enthusiastic support of other poets, Robert Creeley served as a mentor and friend to many, many poets. Charles Bernstein, a colleague of Creeley s at SUNY-Buffalo wrote in the Brooklyn Rail: So many poets had an intimate relation with Creeley; he had a way of connecting with each of us in particular and, through that connection with him, to a company of poets in the U.S. and around the world. Creeley died in 2005 in Odessa, Texas, of complications resulting from lung disease. He had been completing a residency for the Lannan Foundation in Marfa, Texas. Don Byrd quoted him in Contemporary Poets: I write to realize the world as one has come to live in it, thus to give testament. I write to move in words, a human delight. I write when no other act is possible. Asked about good poems, Creeley, who had written in the introduction to Best American Poetry 2002 that the poem is that place we are finally safe in where understanding is not a requirement. You don t have to know why. Being there is the one requirement, responded, If one only wrote good poems, what a dreary world it would be.
5 It is hard going to the door cut so small in the wall where the vision which echoes loneliness brings a scent of wild flowers in a wood. What I understood, I understand. My mind is sometime torment, sometimes good and filled with livelihood, and feels the ground. But I see the door, and knew the wall, and wanted the wood, and would get there if I could with my feet and hands and mind. Lady, do not banish me for digressions. My nature is a quagmire of unresolved confessions. Lady, I follow. I walked away from myself, I left the room, I found the garden, I knew the woman in it, together we lay down. Dead night remembers. In December we change, not multiplied but dispersed, sneaked out of childhood, the ritual of dismemberment. Mighty magic is a mother, in her there is another issue of fixture, repeated form, the race renewal, the charge of the command. The garden echoes across the room. It is fixed in the wall like a mirror that faces a window behind you and reflects the shadows. The Door By Robert Creeley Audio Player Poetry Foundation for Robert Duncan
6 May I go now? Am I allowed to bow myself down in the ridiculous posture of renewal, of the insistence of which I am the virtue? Nothing for You is untoward. Inside You would also be tall, more tall, more beautiful. Come toward me from the wall, I want to be with You. So I screamed to You, who hears as the wind, and changes multiply, invariably, changes in the mind. Running to the door, I ran down as a clock runs down. Walked backwards, stumbled, sat down hard on the floor near the wall. Where were You. How absurd, how vicious. There is nothing to do but get up. My knees were iron, I rusted in worship, of You. For that one sings, one writes the spring poem, one goes on walking. The Lady has always moved to the next town and you stumble on after Her. The door in the wall leads to the garden where in the sunlight sit the Graces in long Victorian dresses, of which my grandmother had spoken. History sings in their faces. They are young, they are obtainable, and you follow after them also in the service of God and Truth. But the Lady is indefinable, she will be the door in the wall to the garden in sunlight. I will go on talking forever.
7 I will never get there. Oh Lady, remember me who in Your service grows older not wiser, no more than before. How can I die alone. Where will I be then who am now alone, what groans so pathetically in this room where I am alone? I will go to the garden. I will be a romantic. I will sell myself in hell, in heaven also I will be. In my mind I see the door, I see the sunlight before me across the floor beckon to me, as the Lady s skirt moves small beyond it. The Rain By Robert Creeley Audio Player Poetry Foundation All night the sound had come back again, and again falls this quiet, persistent rain. What am I to myself that must be remembered, insisted upon so often? Is it that never the ease, even the hardness, of rain falling will have for me something other than this, something not so insistent am I to be locked in this final uneasiness.
8 Love, if you love me, lie next to me. Be for me, like rain, the getting out of the tiredness, the fatuousness, the semilust of intentional indifference. Be wet with a decent happiness. Tonight, nothing is long enough time isn t. Were there a fire, it would burn now. Were there a heaven, I would have gone long ago. I think that light is the final image. But time reoccurs, love and an echo. A time passes love in the dark. The Tunnel By Robert Creeley Audio Player Poetry Foundation
9 The Way - Poem by Robert Creeley Audio saved from Poem Hunter My love's manners in bed are not to be discussed by me, as mine by her I would not credit comment upon gracefully. Yet I ride by the margin of that lake in the wood, the castle, and the excitement of strongholds; and have a small boy's notion of doing good. Oh well, I will say here, knowing each man, let you find a good wife too, and love her as hard as you can. Robert Creeley
10 I Know a Man By Robert Creeley Audio Player Poetry Foundation As I sd to my friend, because I am always talking, John, I sd, which was not his name, the darkness surrounds us, what can we do against it, or else, shall we & why not, buy a goddamn big car, drive, he sd, for christ s sake, look out where yr going. The Warning By Robert Creeley For love I would split open your head and put a candle in behind the eyes. Love is dead in us if we forget the virtues of an amulet and quick surprise.
