Turns out the two have much in common. I just loved this: a writer so open about how his work and life touch another writer's.
Little books like this make the world better, teaching us much and inviting more. Beautifully written and deeply felt, this is a penetrating examination of Bishop's aesthetic of stylistic restraint and personal reticence. Toibin's sensibility is superbly attuned to that of the formidable Bishop, a poet whose shadow over the crowded landscape of 20th-century American poetry grows longer with every passing year.
He explores the places Nova Scotia, Brazil and working friendships Moore, Lowell central to Bishop's poetry of solitariness and exile; he finds her true companions in this 'restrained but serious ambition' Wyatt, Herbert, Gunn ; he distinguishes the candor of her art from the facts of her life, the emotions of her poetry from its causes.
Above all, he honors Bishop's exact ways with language, and his sifting of what is said from what is unsaid in her poetry illuminates his own watchful and patient art as a novelist.
It focuses, among other things, on the restraint of her style and the power of the unsaid in her work. I have no doubt this book will become one of the essential texts on Bishop's work.
