    Boy Breaking Glass... Wonderful poem; tragic and triumphant of (what I can only imagine) a snippet of the American black experience.

    Hopefully not a duplicate:

    Enjoyed especially: "He worked the place as a farm,
    though how, with stones for soil, she never knew.
    Partly she hoped he’d been a poet, too.
    Why else hang Haystack mountain and its view
    from northwest windows?"... with a twist ending

    re:"The Pangolin". Couldnīt access the document (needs signing in) but found this somewhat long comment on the poem:

    Enjoyed DREAM-LAND, found the reference poem "Ultima Thule"http://www.poetryatlas.com/poetry/poem/230/ultima-thule.html It seems Atlas poems are now visible to me, donīt ask me why.

    Lol... I finally accessed your The Pangolin link... ... hey! Sixth times a charm: more insights found !
    The pangolin, trying to exist as peacefully as possible in his own world, is an exemplar of a kindly manner. The monks, also exemplars, who worked away peacefully, creating good crafts and at last dying and lining up along the stone mullions, became in the end, part of the design--and the poem is concerned with the overall design in life, in art and in language.
    and
    A Moore poem has its armor, too, the armor of meaning within meaning and the armor of reference within reference, all of it, of course, leading to one conclusion--in this case, a major Christian affirmation.
    Craig Raine's poem is delightfully obtuse... enjoyed the analysis after the poem

    A sad but very intense poem. German Victorianism?! I tried to find the German original or, at least, more information about Gustav Hartwig, but wasnīt successful so far. In the German Poets Lexicon Gustav Hartwig was mentioned as the pseudonym of Guſtav Hirſch, but that didnīt help very much as there is no more information about the latter either.

    Re: Gustav Hartwig... still more research needed. I did find a google book entry with the story of "The Rat-Catcher of Hameln" being attributed to Gustav Hartwig... https://books.google.nl/books?id=xNs...artwig&f=false but you haven't access.

    It appears that the story has legs through many authors and iterations.

    re: Gustav Hartwig: Could access the poem. Some curiosities about the Pied Piper, but again, saw no mention of Hartwig:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pied_Piper_of_Hamelin

    re CXXXVII. It isnīt clear to me, who is that "me" thatīs speaking. It seems that it is a part of a big poem. But even by going back and forward I didnīt get the whole picture.
