Definitely one of my faves! I didn't give it a perfect 5 because I think some of the poems were not that related to traveling. I mean, I didn't feel the traveling part that much. Some didn't move me. But generally, I love how the author wrote the poems. Where can I get a copy in the Philippines, please?
People all around us but still we are all alone. Good read.
I loved the book (got it free from my sister who bought it for a dollar at a thrift shop and never read it, gave it to me--inside the cover it is stamped with the name and address of a local old-folks' home). As I read, I felt like I was traveling with McKuen on his journeys--the common human, feeling the rawness of the road, love, sex, life, death, beginnings and endings, loneliness, insecurity, disappointment, excitement, hope, nature, adjustment, determination, appreciation, musing, irritatio [...]
I bought this book at a library saleI am so glad to have discovered this very contemporary voice in poetry. As a song writer Rod McKuen has a very developed feel for tempo and flow. A great "picnic poetry book" to read with someone special next summer.
Potentially, my favorite Rod McKuen collection. Read it all in a single sitting, preferably outside on a gloomy day with a cup of warm coffee. McKuen travels; McKuen loves. McKuen rests; he watches his love's end. It encompasses the wandering sense present in his other collections, but arranges them intermittently between his romantic observations with a special precision to place and time. If you pick up any of his books, may it be this one.
This book came into my hands for free, and I had no idea who the author was. Other than the information that was in the book I didn't do any research either, so I probably don't have the appreciation of him that someone else might have who sought this book out or encountered it as a fan. In terms of the poems, I felt that the first section about the different cities were alright, though some were certainly better than others. The lyrics included in the final section of the book were better, and [...]
Read this again - after hearing about McKuen's death. Straight to the shelves and picked it out - offthetracks/r-i-p-r - not sure it's great, in fact I know it isn't. But he had something. And nostalgia plays a huge part in my 'appreciation' of his talent/s.
I thought that this book had several different poems that are interesting. I didn't like the book much, because I'm not really a poem reader.
The main emphasis of the poems in this work are cities and the various people who inhabit them. Some are erotic in nature but all show human emotion.
I read this book a lifetime ago and loved it. My oldest brother was a big fan and that is how I began my love of poetry.
NYEHEHEHEHEHEHHE I BOUGHT THIS FOR ONLY 5 COINS. XDand lol the only point I`ve gotten on this is that they are lonely. xD
