A capstone to an unforgettable career; Over the past half century, the great shape-shifting poet C. K. Williams took upon himself the poet's task: to record with candor and ardor the burden of being alive. In Falling Ill, his final volume of poems, he brings this task to its conclusion, bearing witness to a restless mind's encounter with the brute fact of the body's decay, the spirit's erasure. Written with unsparing lyricism and relentless discursive logic, these brave poems face unflinchingly the dreadful edge of a precipice where a futureless future stares back. Urgent, unpunctuated, headlong, vertiginous, they race against time to trace the sinuous, startling twists and turns of consciousness. All is coming apart, taken away, except the brilliant art to describe it as the end is coming. All along is the reassurance of love's close presence. Here are no easy resolutions, false consolations. Like unanswered prayers, they are poems of deep interrogation a dialogue between the agonized I in its harrowing here-and-nowness and the elusive you of the beloved who flickers achingly just out of reach. Williams's "Falling Ill" takes its place among the enduring works of literature about death and departure.… (més)
