Saving DaylightSaving Daylight by Jim Harrison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I am a huge fan of Jim Harrison's poetry and prose. I don't think this is his strongest book of poetry, but it's still enormously satisfying. It touches on the usual Harrison themes - nature, dogs, women, lust, human idiocy, war, aging. A couple of the poems are published in both Spanish and English and one poem is a translation of Neruda. The title poem, in particular, struck me this week as we move our clocks forward amidst ignorance. It is poetry of the hard-lived, the rough and tumble, and the appreciative and the savagely honest.
