He was a highly empathetic man; generous, lightning-fast in conversation. Puzzling through, one repeatedly finds oneself taking up a thread of sense or story and making it stretch as long as possible, sometimes over several sonnets, until forced to slow down, and at last give up and take up the next.

    Though his poetry would strike some as rarefied or baffling, he was a master of common decency as well as uncommon phrasings, showing great kindness to younger scribblers, myself included. It is not the light and the landscape, the sense of motion of limbs or machine, the anger and the disappointments, the passions and hungers, which are magnificent. The effect is the poetic equivalent of a caffeine rush, as one moves from thought to thought, switching in and out of understanding at a great rate. Nevertheless, the two poets are usually seen as representing two com peting and incompatible views of what poetry should be, rather than as representing aspects of a healthily diverse poetic culture.
