@richnewman This was my first book-length experience of both Levine and Clark. I was already pretty familiar with Levine, but I didn’t really know Tom Clark. He appears to have been wickedly prolific, so I can’t be sure how representative Easter Sunday was. It was largely made up of short pieces that seemed at first to be very conversational but always managed to take some odd surprising turn, either verbally or conceptually. And reading a whole book of Levine’s really confirmed that he’s a master at a sort of poetry that is especially difficult because it looks so easy: telling a story.
