Death, fame, art, and religion become comic subjects in Twenty First Century Blues, the fourth collection from Richard Cecil. Whether elegizing his predecessors, predicting his own end, channeling Dickinson's "corpse-eye-view of stony death," or imagining Yeats living in Indiana and dealing with English department politics, Cecil tempers his morbidity with a straightforward, tender brand of humor and a refreshing honesty about the shelf life of contemporary poetry. Deadpan and dark, yet pulsing with the spirit of life, these poems speak of historic France, Italy, and Swit.
